Music and Drama
These subjects play a very important part in children's lives as they give them the opportunity of exploring, expressing and communicating different ideas and feelings. Pupils derive a great deal of pleasure from playing musical instruments and using role play to create imaginative story lines that can often be linked into many other areas of the curriculum. Children also have the opportunity to learn to play instruments as part of their general curriculum. In addition, there is the chance for parents to invest in extra one-to-one lessons for their children. Opportunities to learn the piano and guitar are provided by some of our specialist music teachers.
