The Arts

Music, Drama and Art & Design play an important role in the breadth and depth our curriculum.


Our aim in music lessons is, first and foremost, to develop a life-long love of music. Music helps to develop skills that support learning in other areas of the curriculum and that are needed for both life and work, for example listening skills, the ability to concentrate, creativity, intuition, aesthetic sensitivity, perseverance, self-confidence and sensitivity towards others.


All children perform in class assemblies and in workshops to encourage imaginative performance. During the year they may avail themselves of the opportunity to further develop their acting skills in our Drama Club.

Every summer, Year 2 stages a musical production for the parents and the school.

Art and Design Technology

Class based art projects, which may include weaving, clay modelling, painting, model making and picture making in a variety of media are always a highlight for the children. The quality of their creations is appreciated and proudly displayed around the school.
