Departments: Creative Arts

Creative ArtsThe Creative Arts department at Finham Park currently comprises Drama, Media Arts, Music and Performing Arts. The Faculty was formed with the vision of bringing together the collective creative expertise of these departments, sharing good practice in creative teaching pedagogy, and inspiring the use of cross-curricular creative skills amongst students in other areas of the school. Creative lessons teach through a combination of several key personal, learning and thinking skills (PLTS) which are much sought-after by employers. These include enquiry and investigation skills, creative thinking skills, teamwork, effective participation and self-management skills, and the ability to be reflective of one's own learning and working practices. This focus on creative process is at the heart of our faculty's 21st Century approach to learning, and fundamental to the success of our students.
