Key Stage Three:
Pupils have 2 hours of Dance per fortnight and learn through the three strands of Dance Education – Performance, Choreography and Evaluation.
Pupils experience a range of musical accompaniment and dance styles in their lessons and have access to a range of costumes and props to enhance their work.
Dance clubs are also on offer for pupils to participate in at lunchtime.
Key Stage Four:
Pupils can choose to study BTEC Dance as one of their options in Year 10 and 11. The course develops pupil’s performance, choreography and evaluation skills building on their experience from Key Stage three.

Exam results are excellent and provide pupils with a vocational qualification to allow them to continue their dance studies in the Sixth Form.
