    The study of Art provides a vital form of expression and opens up additional ways to experience and appreciate the world around us. At Yardleys we seek to provide an exciting and stimulating environment in which students can develop their critical, practical and creative skills, and explore their artistic potential.

    Never have creativity, adaptability and cooperation been more important. Drama as a discipline is uniquely placed to help instil a number of qualities that are essential to future success in school, university and the great, wide world.

    Students are exposed to a wide variety of genres, cultures and concepts, sharing Music they enjoy in lessons with their peers and they are encouraged to express their musical opinions. Learning a musical vocabulary helps them explain what it is in music that speaks to them, in doing so identifying musical memories which informs their own compositional work and practical performances.
