Art & Design


The Arts at All Saints is a crucial component in developing the whole child through our broad and balanced curriculum. The Arts comprises of art, music, dance and drama, and provides children the opportunity to explore, develop and showcase new and existing talents.

Children have the opportunity to explore and attend a range of artistic events to fuel aspirations. By exploring a range of mediums in the arts builds confidence and emotional intelligence. Cross-curricular learning enables unique talents to be embraced whilst promoting diversity and equality. Learners are able to share their new or existing talents through worships and other events. By doing this, they are able to thrive in a shared society.
