Arts and culture

We have a strong academic focus at Charles Darwin – which in our view has to include rich access to arts and culture.

We encourage our pupils to explore and express themselves through art and creativity, building a wide range of communication and thinking skills along the way.

We believe in the power of music to enhance lives, both through the sheer pleasure of listening to and enjoying music, ands the discipline and teamwork of individual and group playing and singing.

Our regularly changing extended school day offer - which has included music, dance, story telling, drama, and arts and crafts - is unique and amazing part of school life. 

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we run our elective programme. These are high quality, optional enrichment clubs that are led by members of staff and external providers and run from 3pm to 4pm, free of charge.
