The Saltash Performing Arts Team offers a curriculum incorporating both Music and Drama, as well as a rich and diverse variety of extra-curricular activities.

Our staff are passionate about their subjects and this is an exciting time for the school and for the Performing Arts team, as we continue to refine and improve our curriculum offer from Year 7 right through to Year 13.
We have a dedicated Drama Studio, Music room and a suite of practice rooms. Our music curriculum covers music theory and notation, popular music, World music, as well as opportunities to learn a range of musical instruments; whilst our drama curriculum tackles challenging topics that students explore practically, such as immigration, homelessness and Shakespeare. The Performing Arts Department enables students to build their cultural capital, opening a world to the Arts, whilst building teamwork, empathy and motivation. If you are a passionate and enthusiastic music teacher who would relish this opportunity, then we would like to hear from you.
