A new logo for our Expressive Arts Faculty and an action-packed year!
2017 has been filled with Music, Song, Drama and Dance that comes under the umbrella of Expressive Arts at Cirencester Deer Park School. From new song workshops and cross curricular projects, from live performances in school to city theatre trips, we finished 2017 with our wonderfully evocative annual Carol Concert at the Parish Church in Cirencester on Tuesday 12 December.
All pupils in Years 7-9 have lessons in Drama and Music, which helps develop a range of skills such as teamwork, confidence and communication. In addition to our curriculum classes and extra curricular clubs, when joining Deer Park pupils are offered the opportunity to learn a musical instrument; lessons available include Drums, Piano, Guitar (classic and electric), and singing.
Some of our Year 10 and Year 11 pupils choose to study GCSE Drama, GCSE Music and Music Technology. The Year 10 pupils in both Music and Drama have recently finished their first attempt at performing to an audience at GCSE. The pupils in Drama performed to 60 primary school pupils from Kemble and Siddington Primary Schools. The primary pupils were so impressed that they sent them letters thanking them for a wonderful day!
