Our Commitment to providing enrichment to enhance each studentâ€™s college experienceâ€Ś
Teachers in visual and performing arts make good use of probing and searching questions to check learning and develop students’ analytical skills, which results in high levels of achievement and high expectations from both teachers and students. Ofsted 2013 The standard of students’ work is good. Students make good progress in their studies and develop a wide range of employability skills. They integrate technology into their work confidently and imaginatively. Ofsted 2013
Informative talks from professional organisations paint a realistic picture for students of the opportunities, strengths and pitfalls of careers in the arts and media. Students participate in visits to performances, exhibitions and higher education which broaden their horizons and help inform their future career choices.
Well-motivated and enthusiastic teachers encourage students to achieve to high levels. They plan their lessons well to ensure that students enjoy their learning and participate in a range of stimulating activities. In a revision lesson, students extended their knowledge of musical eras productively by using a ‘speed dating’ activity where they rapidly
interrogated each other.
In performing arts, teachers monitor progress well through the use of interactive blogs and provide frequent, detailed feedback which students appreciate and respond to promptly. Ofsted 2013
