The key aim of the Art at St. Saviour's is to encourage each child to have a
lifelong interest and enjoyment of Art.
Our Art teaching is lively, challenging and wide-ranging. We'll introduce your child to as many art forms as possible, including painting, printing and modelling. Just as important, we think about art's historical and cultural context, explore ideas and develop your child's capacity for making and explaining judgements.
Through experimentation each child at St. Saviour's is able to develop their
knowledge and understanding of Art and its wider role within the world.
Ideas are explored through themed topics, children learn traditional, modern and contemporary approaches to making art. They experiment with a broad range of materials and techniques to create their ideas. Repetition of key skills allow each child to refine the quality of their creations and become increasingly confident in their making. The hope is that all children are proud of the art they make.
The musical life at St. Saviour's is vibrant and filled with lots of fun activities
and events for all ages and ability levels.
There are so many opportunities to make music at St. Saviour's and every child can take part - whether performing a violin solo, playing in the musical recital, or singing in assembly.
Within the curriculum every child has a weekly music lesson with a dedicated, specialist teacher. We also have visiting specialist instrumental teachers and the majority of children learn an instrument.
Throughout the year there are numerous musical events and productions.
The school prepares the children for the ABRSM exams.
Drama at St. Saviour's is five-star entertainment!
From Reception to Year 6, the children have a dedicated drana lesson each week with a dedicated specialist Drama teacher. We believe that through drama, your child will develop self-esteem, confidence and exceptional communication skills.
There is an opportunity to perform in every year group; in Year 6, the pupils put together an evening of variety entertainment on a theme. In recent years we have produced Jesus Christ Superstar, Oliver, Lion King, Obesaki, Alladin, Beauty and The Beast.
