The Arts

The Arts are considered a strength at The Royal School and develop valuable transferrable skills like organisation, collaboration, presentation and self-confidence. More importantly, it provides access to our heritage in arts and culture and exposes pupils to the finest ideas that have ever been expressed.


The Royal School offers a good range of specialisms within the Arts, to cater for a wide spectrum of approaches and to cover a broad variety of skills. Art, Design Technology, Drama, Music and Textiles are taught right through the school and Photography is also offered as a GCSE and A Level option. These areas have an ethos of nurturing individual creativity and encouraging talents to flourish, whilst advancing key skills in the individual subjects, such as drawing, developing concepts and understanding and responding to the work of artists and designers.
