he Arts play a strong role within the Academy. All examinable subjects within the Arts perform at an outstanding level, far outstripping national averages. The Arts are further strengthened by our outstanding new facilities.
Students are encouraged to enhance their experiences at the Academy with additional activities in the Arts. A number of students participate in concerts and shows, either as performers or as technicians. Performance is clearly an important aspect of the Arts and we are as proud of our audience as we are of the performers. Staff and students regularly perform within the Academy in assemblies or at pop-up concerts and the audience is always appreciative and supportive, a true recognition of the courage it takes to stand up and perform. Students can also get involved in variety of Art & Design projects. Trips to see plays, musicals, concerts and exhibitions are also arranged.
