The Faculty believes that the Arts:

  • Enrich lives
  • provide a sense of empowerment and direction
  • provide life skills for the future
  • build self confidence
  • have a positive impact on the social, emotional and behavioral development of the child
  • promote a sense of well-being and empathy through staff and peer support
  • stimulate the imagination and provide focus

Delivery of the curriculum is child-centered and enhanced by cross curricular links, extra-curricular activities, trips, events, performances and professional workshops. Career opportunities, academic structure and educational pathways are provided with the aim to further students’ involvement in the Arts.
