The Arts

A source of inspiration and enjoyment

At Hautes Capelles, we believe high quality teaching and learning within the Arts enriches childens’ learning and are a source of inspiration and enjoyment.

They provide contexts in which children and young people learn to communicate their thoughts and emotions, use their imaginations, experiment and develop creativity.

Pupils at Hautes Capelles participate in a range of art forms - including art and design, drama, music and dance. Helping learners become responsive, critical and appreciative. They discover the value of discipline and practice and, in resounding to the work of others, they gain insights into different viewpoints, identities, traditions and cultures.

The Arts makes a key contribution to learners’ personal, social and emotional development and to their growth as confident individuals. It enables them to participate in and respond to the creative and cultural life of their communities. Working as artists and designers they are encouraged to develop their own voice and actively collaborate in order to communicate with a variety of audiences through different media and contexts.
