‘The creative subjects such as art, music and drama are particular strengths of the whole school’

ISI Integrated Inspection November 2014

At HCPS creativity is an integral part of school life and every child thrives in our exciting and fulfilling environment. Life is a stage…at HCPS we don’t just perform, we out-perform!

In Drama your child will experience  a diverse wealth of activities, which will allow them the space to grow and really express themselves in a creative, fun and stimulating environment with additional input from specialist teachers. All children from Reception upwards have the opportunity of learning and taking the external Verse and Prose LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) examinations. Our gifted and talented children from Year 4 are also given the opportunity of working towards acting LAMDA exams which take place in March every year.  Performances, including the Nativity, Year 6 production and pantomimes, regularly take place throughout the academic year. 

Children all love Art at HCPS and the standard of work produced by them is high. Just by looking at the pictures on the website and by visiting our school, you will see  the fantastic opportunities your child could have to explore diverse experiences within our art curriculum.

The outstanding provision of Music gives all children opportunities to have a go at something new in a lively dynamic environment.  Our highly qualified peripatetic teachers offer tuition in a wide range of musical instruments and vocal coaching and these are hugely popular among the Prep School children with many of them eager to compete in our annual Music Competition!

Our exceptional provision for Design and Technology, which takes place in our purpose built DT classroom, allows children from Year 1 upwards to have a fantastic time designing and creating products in our purpose built DT department. From sewing to sawing, injection-moulding to vacuum-forming; all pupils love tackling the challenges set in DT.
