The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme is the first example of such a collaboration, where our students and staff have the opportunity to learn with a world leader in performing arts education. The programme has been designed to give our students a deep engagement with music, dance and drama, and to enhance their cultural literacy.
It enriches the high quality teaching and learning offered in our schools with the artistic values, traditions and expertise of Juilliard. Our students develop skills such as critical thinking, resilience, risk taking and discipline which they can use in their learning in any subject. Students develop cultural literacy, broadening their understanding of cultural and social history around the world to give them a global experience.
Teachers experience ongoing opportunities for professional development and both teachers and students benefit from being connected to Juilliard’s worldwide network of performers and teachers, as Juilliard teaching artists will bring their insights to Nord Anglia’s collaborative teaching community. The programme ensures our students continue to receive the highest quality teaching and resources available and help them develop a long-lasting relationship with great works of art from all over the world.
