Research suggests that there are many benefits for students taking the performing arts. As
well as developing their cultural awareness, the performing arts can help students to make
progress in learning new skills-such as collaboration, creativity and resilience. According to a
report released by the World Economic Forum earlier this year, 21st century skills are needed
more than ever. This report details the reasons behind our collaboration with The Juilliard
School, including findings from research we carried out with our first 10 schools that received
the Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts programme last year.
