About The Curriculum
Our students will develop skills such as critical thinking, resilience, risk-taking and discipline which students can use in their learning in any subject. Students will develop cultural literacy, broadening their understanding of cultural and social history around the world to give them a global experience.
The programme will inspire and equip our students with the skills, curiosity and cultural literacy to engage with the performing arts throughout their lives.
