The Performing Arts curriculum area comprises drama, dance and music. These are lively areas of the school, where there is always a buzz of activity. These are also popular subjects at CHS and we consistently enjoy excellent examination results. Drama is regarded as a real strength of the school and we have a very good reputation in the local community for producing outstanding drama productions. Our exceptional facilities include:
- One fully-equipped drama studio
- One dedicated drama space with blackout and sound facilities
- Two music studios
- A suite of practice rooms
- A recording studio
- A sound isolation room
Key Stage 3 overview
Our intent within Performing Arts is to nurture passionate, imaginative and creative individuals, who view the world from an artistic perspective. We develop individuality, encourage students to think and express themselves with confidence and encourage tolerance and understanding of others. We intend students to develop an extensive range of skills as they explore, experiment and create. Through the Performing Arts curriculum we promote a sense of self-worth, encourages confidence, resilience and develop relationships. Students are encouraged to question and challenge their perception of the world and develop the soft skills employers seek.
