WELCOME TO KINETON HIGH SCHOOL

Expressive Arts - Art, Drama and Music

Art

In Art and Design students will have the opportunity to express themselves creatively and foster an appreciation of the visual world around them. A varied curriculum of projects, often linked to the work of other artists, will inspire students. Structured teaching will enable them to develop their practical skills to realise their ideas in different media and to be increasingly independent as they gain experience and confidence.  

Through projects students will investigate and develop ideas and gain an appreciation of the work of other artists. They will experiment with techniques and refine their ideas. Students will be able to draw and record in a variety of ways and reflect on their progress. They will present considered final pieces that realise their intentions. 

It is our vision to provide creative and engaging opportunities that will inspire our students now and in the future. 

The curriculum plan for each subject demonstrates the planned progression for students across a key stage. It is therefore a strategic document to ensure that all students receive the same key curriculum whilst enabling staff to develop their lessons to adapt to the needs of their individual students. As a result there may be some adaption to the timescales of the overviews, but the key assessment points will provide the means to ensure that all students have benefited from the agreed curriculum.

Drama

We study Drama at Kineton High School to develop confidence, creativity, collaboration and public presence through exploration, interpretation and developing a technical understanding of characterisation, directing and design. Students develop skills in creation and performance and develop a level of professionalism as they progress through each course of study. In addition, as students’ progress through each Key Stage they perform to wider audiences, developing a level of mastery in performing to a live audience.
