Creative Arts

Newquay Tretherras has an extensive Expressive Arts programme based around the subjects of Art, Photography, Music, Dance and Drama.
We encourage creativity, collaboration and enquiry in all aspects of the curriculum, both in lesson time and in learning that takes place outside of the classroom. Creativity is valued as one of our seven core NT Learning Skills.

There are lots of exciting opportunities for students to develop creativity, work with others and to nurture individual talents. Newquay Tretherras has a reputation for providing high quality arts experiences both within the curriculum, including at examination levels, and as part of our extensive extra-curricular Expressive and Performing Arts activities.

We offer an exciting programme of productions, with the annual Christmas and Spring Concert providing students with a platform to show their talents as musicians and singers, whilst the summer Dance Show features dance in a wide variety of styles from ballet to hip-hop. The annual Art Exhibition highlights the skills of our photographers and visual artists across painting, printing and sculpture.

Additionally, we offer our students regular opportunities to visit dance and drama productions in Truro, Plymouth and London. Your child will be able to work alongside professional artists and dance students will regularly contribute their talents to community events.

Whether it is visiting a musical or dance show, performing a full Shakespeare play, exhibiting their art or photographs or learning to play a new instrument, there is a wealth of opportunities on offer.
