Curriculum Area vision and general information about the CA e.g. successes and strengths

The Hereford Academy believes that the arts can play an exciting and leading role in providing dynamic focus for the educational experience of its young people.

The arts enrich the quality of our experiences, providing rewarding activities that inspire, inform, stimulate, challenge and entertain. Arts activities help develop the capacity to formulate and communicate ideas and feelings; they enhance perceptual skills through responding, developing and evaluating, and physical skills through control and use of movement. Involvement in the arts helps to foster a positive attitude among students by developing a wide range of qualities such as cooperation, enthusiasm, passion, inspiration, tenacity and ambition. We also emphasise that this is an inclusive involvement, which helps students acquire an important sense of belonging as well as building the self-confidence they need to do well and make their first steps towards higher education and employment.

The performing arts and related subjects will continue to act as a catalyst for cultural development and are a point at which different cultures meet and recognize one another’s worth and diversity.

The Hereford Academy Performing Arts Department will provide many opportunities for groups and individuals to perform both in house and at external events.
