At Hollinwood Academy, we are passionate about the impact of our Creative Curriculum. All pupils engage in a number of Creative Arts lessons including Dance, Drama and Art.

During Key Stage 3, pupils explore Drama and Dance through creating, performing and responding. All pupils explore both Drama and Dance per term in equal measure for one lesson per week.
