Expressive Arts

WELCOME TO THE EXPRESSIVE ARTS DEPARTMENT

 

Expressive Arts starts in year seven with a course that covers elements of all of the performing arts including drama, music and dance.  Students will cover performance skills, key techniques, music notation, rhythm, key terms and analytical skills.  In year nine, students select from courses in GCSE Drama and BTEC Music allowing them to further develop these skills alongside scripted and devised performances and work using a Digital Audio Workstation.
 
We also run extra curricular groups including a school production - this year's being the Queen musical We Will Rock You, following on from the success of High School Musical and Bugsy Malone - and our school choir, The Free Vocals where we learn a range of modern music in choral arrangements.
