Preparing Your Child for the World Stage

26 september 2016

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.

  • Summer School Juilliard

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. Our research captures the initial impact that the programme has had on our students and teachers and indicates how it has not only enhanced our students’ music education but also a variety of skills that are vital to success in school and later in life.

Why we collaborate with Juilliard
An international perspective
Through our performing arts collaboration with Juilliard, your child will develop cultural
awareness, broadening their understanding of cultural and social history around the
world to give them a unique global experience. It transcends cultural barriers and provides
connections between people with little or nothing in common⁷. 

Transferable skills
We collaborate with The Juilliard School so that your child can develop transferable skills
that can be used in school and the rest of their lives. Along with improving in music, dance
and drama, your child will also develop skills to succeed on the world stage.
Our approach to learning is interdisciplinary and the skills that we develop through the
performing arts are accessible across all subjects¹̛ ². A curriculum in the performing arts can
improve literacy³, mathematics⁴, and cognitive development⁵, along with many transferrable
skills such as resilience and confidence⁶ that will stay with your child throughout school and
later on in life.

Learn from the best
Nord Anglia Education collaborates with world-leading tertiary institutions to foster a love
of learning in your child the same way that universities inspire students to direct their own
learning. That is why we are working with the world leader in performing arts to help inspire
curiosity, creativity and collaboration. Your child will have opportunities to work with Juilliard
artists and experts so that they can go forth in life with the skills they need to succeed.
