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.

KS3 have music and drama once a week, where they explore a varied curriculum, supporting their transition to GCSE/BTEC

Opportunities within Performing Arts

A variety of trips and events such as; visiting the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, a visit from Splendid Productions and The Paper Birds, trips to the Wyvern, London and Bristol and opportunities to compete at Swindon Young Musician in association with Rotary club.
