The Arts

“The arts are essential in life. They can shape and define who we are and how we understand ourselves and our possible selves.”

The Arts are an integral part our school, they are embedded through our curriculum both as explicit art lessons and through links to drama, song and poetry.

How else do we learn in and develop The Arts?

In addition to our regular art lessons, we hold an annual Arts Week.

In 2022 our Arts Week linked to our Erasmus project ‘Build a Better World’ as well as a art initiative ‘The World Reimagined’. One of the final products was a globe that is being displayed in St Paul’s community Centre in Bristol until the end of October 2022 and a rap, written by Sycamore Class and performed by Blaze (watch the video below).
