All students in Key Stage 3 are taught dance, drama and music through a variety of practical topics. The three disciplines have different emphasis and require a range of skills but they are taught using a common approach which encourages enjoyment and creativity. Students will have the opportunity to choreograph and perform using a variety of different ideas in dance lessons. In drama, students will learn how to devise drama using both original ideas and scripts as a stimulus. In music, students have the opportunity to sing and play musical instruments and also to compose using ICT.
