In addition to the various role-play activities employed in English lessons, there is a concert in one form or another each term in which sketches may be performed. Christmas sees more ‘traditional’ Nativity plays performed by Nursery, Transition, Reception and Pre Prep. Each Summer Term sees the grand whole-school production which features every child in the school, from Nursery to Year 5 & 6 who generally take the leading roles. This is performed in a marquee after Speech Day. This production includes many dance routines and both solo and group singing. In recent years children have gained many drama and performing arts scholarships.
We regard participation and success in the Arts as important as academic achievement, and every child’s performance and creation is valued by staff, parents and pupils alike.
