Juilliard - Nord Anglia Collaboration
The Juilliard School is a world leader in performing arts education. As we know, music can play a transformational role in children's education. The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme has been designed to give students a deep engagement with performing arts - promoting cultural literacy, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration.
It is because of this collaboration that our children gain access to Juilliard’s worldwide network of performers such as Jason Crimi. We have seen how working with teachers and artists of this calibre inspires young minds to achieve their dreams, and so we are very proud of our collaboration and the extra dimension it brings to our students.
