Music and Drama are taught as part of the Opening Minds curriculum in Year 7 and then in form groups by specialist teachers in Year 8 for one hour a week. Students in Year 9 experience Dance, Drama, Music and Technical Support (Sound & Lighting) on a rotational basis for one hour a week.

Students will work individually and as members of a team and will have the opportunity to share the work completed within the faculty through the mediums of presentation and performance. At Key Stage 4, students study within the discrete areas for GCSE or BTEC certification. The faculty also offers the opportunity for students to study GCSE Performing Arts where they are able to specialise in one or more of the Performing Arts subjects.
