KS4 Music

'We live in one of the best cities for opportunities for the arts in the UK.​ The Creative Arts faculty thrives to challenge the perception of the arts in the local community and provide opportunities for students to explore the arts in both a local & global content. In turn, we hope this will open up a range of job / career opportunities our community of students may never have thought about before. ​What a wonderful opportunity we have all been given to inspire and teach our students.​'
