It is this breadth of learning that permits young people to use the subjects either as specialist interest or as an excellent foundation for any career. In a rapidly changing world it is the transferable skills that dominate the Expressive Arts Faculty that will permit pupils to be flexible, imaginative and resilient in their future lives.

The Expressive Arts Faculty is split into three departments.   These are: Art and Design, Drama and Music.

The departments offer great opportunities for pupils to expand their learning out from the classroom, whether that is competition in sport, art exhibitions and national competitions, construction challenge or performance in concerts.
