Music at Regents has a long and proud history and the allocation of curriculum lessons from Early Years to Key Stage 3 is enviable. All Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 students enjoy two 80-minute music lessons each week of the year which enables both the Secondary and Primary teams (4 staff in total) plenty of scope to embed and deliver a meaningful academic pathway with the Juilliard Curriculum at its core.
With two full-time staff in Drama, the school is not able to match the Music allocation in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, however the Head of Drama has been working strategically to integrate an authentic Juilliard Creative Classroom scheme throughout the primary programmes by supporting classrooms teachers in their understanding of the importance of authentic Drama.
As we look to the future, further developing the breadth of Drama in our Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculum will be a key focus. The recent decision to support the teacher training of one of our graduate Gap Staff over the next two years (in Drama) through distance learning in her home country will go a long way to supporting the development of Drama while she learns on the job at Regents.
