Performing Arts Faculty

We are passionate about our art forms and share the love of our subjects with the students, through our curriculum and enrichment programme.

  1. We teach students to be creative, to perform, apply, respond, and reflect
  2. We provide transferable skills to every aspect of student’s curriculum at Oxted, and beyond in the wider world
  3. We build the students confidence in their own ability, helping them understand themselves, communicate and relate with others. This is especially relevant post-COVID where students’ self-esteem is lower than we have ever seen
  4. We provide a positive safe space; the strong relationships we have with our students exemplifies the trust and high expectations we have of them
  5. We create the feeling of ‘belonging’ to Oxted School and students and staff are proud to be part of our community
