Creative Arts

The Creative Arts are an essential part of school life at St Andrews Green Valley. Learning about and through art is paramount to the development of the whole child, promoting creativity, critical thinking, communication and social skills. Whether embedded through our Primary Years Programme (PYP) or our extra curricular activities, creativity through the arts takes many forms in Primary.

Through our creative curriculum, our students are able to access a range of artistic opportunities. Whether it be through dramatic performance, music, dance, visual art or digital art, we captivate and engage students, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to experiment and invent their own works of art, using a variety of media and technologies. In doing so, our learners creatively explore their ideas using the Arts as a creative outlet to express their ideas, emotions and identity.

As an international school, with over 35 different nationalities, Green Valley students not only value, but actively explore the variety of arts and cultures represented within their learning community through annual celebrations.

Here are but a few examples of the Creative Arts events that we host throughout the year:

   London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) examinations

   Annual drama productions, in collaboration with Secondary School

   PYP learning journeys and productions

   Mini Lunchtime Music concerts

    Carols by Candlelight and Christmas concerts

    External music lessons and ABRSM exams

    Art exhibitions

    STEAM projects

As a PYP school we want to empower our students with learning opportunities that are not only fit for the 21st century, but that also fuels their passions and interests in areas such as marketing, videography, photography, stage lighting and sound. Throughout their time in Primary, students benefit from the opportunity to fine-tune these skills in preparation for the Year 6 PYP Exhibition. This event offers a perfect opportunity for each student to showcase their journey as a learner in a Primary Phase, through a culmination of skills in the Creative Arts.
