Young Americans at Shotton Hall

Arts in school

Ensuring the arts are a key part of school life is an important aspect of the community arts programme. Embedding 'arts in school' means offering students the opportunity to experience arts and culture as a part of the curriculum. Experimentation is a big part of all school projects allowing students to be spontaneous and to use creative practice to really fire their imagination.

Recent projects have included:

  • Healthy School Week 

  • Shakespeare Schools

  • Young Americans

  • Shakespeare schools festival

  • Anti-bullying week

School arts provision includes:

  • Year 7 drama club

  • Year 8 drama club

  • Senior drama club

  • Key stage 3 and 4 choirs

  • Individual singing tuition - London College of Music examinations

  • LAMDA solo acting examinations
