At Rushden Academy we pride ourselves on delivering high quality Performing Arts provision both in and out of the classroom. We believe Performing Arts plays a significant and exciting role in the educational experience of our students, and as such we strive to offer a provision & opportunities that stimulate and inspire our young people.
Rushden Academy has an exciting Performing Arts program with Dance, Drama & Music embedded within the Key Stage 3 curriculum. All three subjects are then offered at Key stage 4 & 5 alongside other overarching subjects such as a specific Performing Arts qualification.
As a department we aspire to provide students with an opportunity to develop their skills and passion and foster a culture for appreciation of the Arts through a range of experiences and opportunities. From a curriculum designed to engage and excite, offering workshops delivered by industry professionals, regular trips to West End productions, opportunities to perform in venues around the county and producing work for the local community, to an extensive programme of Extracurricular events, Rushden Academy Performing Arts aims to create a culture of learning through the arts that encourages inclusion, promotes creativity, supports progression and develops crucial life skills.
