The Performing Arts Department at Oakwood Academy aims to develop creativity, confidence and social interaction for all pupils.
Across Key Stage 3, pupils are provided with a range of Drama, Dance and Music activities in order for them to start to develop their skills. The curriculum will stimulate children's imagination and help them bring their ideas to life. As well as being thoroughly enjoyable for children, Performing Arts activities promote working as a team while also encouraging individual talent.
Performing arts is an excellent way to empower children to think in a number of different ways and may have the added benefit of aiding their academic performance.
