Our first Arts Festival took place on 29, 30 and 1 July 2005. The Festival involved all pupils in Key Stage 3 and gave them the opportunity to visit museums, art galleries, performance training establishment and a west end show. A day of workshops was held at the School in dance, music and art, run by specialist art practitioners.
