Arts Week : celebrating learning, nurturing creativity, curiosity and imagination

A week-long, immersive experience, the Arts Week combines exposure, learning and practice to open out the horizons of the mind for young people, while simultaneously building value for rigour, reflection, effort and determination. Students experience the power of teamwork and collaboration, and the joys of free creative expression. They learn how to transform working with what you have into magic and delight. They learn that it is in their power to create an interesting life for themselves.

PROGRAMME

Theatre Adventures
Students travel into the magical, transformative world of live performance with a delightful, age specific play by a professional theatre group.
