The Arts are incredibly important at LHS, it provides an outlet for creativity and expression and builds the confidence of all our students who take part.
The Art and Design areas provide opportunities to contribute to the ‘Creativity’ path of the Emerald Way. Our technicians and artists in residence Megan Hunter and Alex Morgan run after-school art clubs for Key stage 3, for our advanced artists and we have after school provision for our dedicated year 9 and Key stage 4 GCSE students.
We get excellent Art GCSE portfolios and results and many of our students go on to further their creative studies at various settings for Post 16.
We enter both local and national competitions including the Arkwright scholarship for engineering, Leicester New Walk gallery open exhibition and the Royal Academy young artist.
Under the banner of creativity, students will have the opportunity to learn an instrument from one of the visiting peripatetic music teachers. They could also join orchestra or choir, or other instrumental group. Students may choose to perform at an informal Arts in the Terrace event, formal school concert or perhaps to their peers in assembly.
Students are encouraged to develop their experience in performing arts through the Musical Theatre Clubs, as well as participation in our annual production. In addition we aim to run a number of trips throughout the year to experience live performance.
