Performing Arts at LPA
Performing Arts at Lydiard Park Academy strives to provide all pupils and students with the right to experience and learn from the arts, whether that’s to pursue a career in the industry, to develop confidence or learn valuable skills necessary beyond the classroom. We give pupils and students a wide range of experiences within a faculty who are passionate and put all at the centre of their teaching. We help develop independent and inquisitive learners, in a positive learning environment for learners to challenge themselves and take risks.
