Students will explore a wide range of play texts, themes and styles of theatre and performance to develop skills, such as empathy, resilience and determination, not easily achieved in other lessons.
Throughout the year, groups go on many trips to experience live theatre as it should be seen. We have excellent relationships with the Old Vic and Donmar Theatres and regularly take part in workshops and performances with them.
The Music provision at the Academy is extensive, offering all students the opportunity to learn a musical instrument starting in Year 7 and being part of the orchestra, which can then lead on to acceptance into the Academy Orchestra. Students receive one-to-one lessons with a specialist teacher to develop their skills and a love for the subject.
Both departments come together regularly to put on events throughout the year to give the students performance opportunities and to demonstrate the skills they develop in the curriculum.
