Children in the Nursery School are able to take Creative Dance lessons. These lessons occur during school time and the cost is added to the school bill.
Specialist clothing is required for Creative Dance and can be ordered through the Queen's College Performing Arts Academy.
Reception children have the opportunity to take Creative Dance as a co-curricular activity while Years 1 and 2 may take Ballet and/or Modern Dance classes.
Small group Speech lessons are available from Year 1 and are a very popular choice of extra-curricular activity.
The syllabus covers speech, voice production, verse-speaking, reading, play-reading and the use of English.
Speech lessons benefit children enormously - building self confidence, encouraging clear speech and developing the skills needed for effective social interaction.
Lessons can lead to the LAMDA examinations and many of our children also take part in the Taunton Speech and Drama Festival, giving them the opportunity to perform in front of an audience.
