Performing Arts

The arts make us feel connected to one another and less isolated. Through the arts we share an emotion and that sharing connects us with each other and we realise we all feel the same emotions. The arts are our last hope. We find our identity and make it easier and more pleasurable to live and they also give us wisdom

Arthur Miller (Playwright and Director)


We are immensely proud of the Performing Arts at Castle Primary School and the impact it has had on our school. It is this strength and the involvement of the whole school in developing our Performing Arts curriculum that has enabled us to involve every child in drama, music and dance. The Performing Arts plays a key role in our children's personal development. The subjects of Music, Dance and Drama have provided all of our children with so many rich and varied opportunities to experience the arts, which develop creative, confident and capable students, who go out into the world and impress others with their abilities.


The Performing Arts specialism has also played a significant role in raising achievement across the curriculum by working with other subjects in school and outdoor learning, to provide rich educational opportunities for our students, as well as continually contributing to the children’s confidence and resilience using their Performing Arts skills, knowledge and methods to improve their own classroom-practice.

The sessions are staffed with specialist teachers, some of whom have significant professional experience in the arts. We always strive to deliver to our students a varied arts curriculum including technical theatre, voice training, specialist dance and at least two full scale musicals a year.
