Arts Award Curriculum
In January 2018, the Key Stage 3 and Performing Arts Teams launched the new Arts Award Curriculum.
Performing Arts is a key focus for Key Stage 3 and this award will enable all pupils in this phase to gain accreditation for either the Discovery Award or Explorers Award. Through completing the award, pupils will access a varied range of Arts activities. So, from Contemporary Dance to Eye Gaze, Abstract Art to Colourscape, musical medleys to Street Dance, we very much look forward to celebrating our pupils achievements with you. Watch this space for how you can get involved in our Expressive Arts initiatives.

Family Project 2017 - Fantastical Family Stories: The Living Photo Album.
The Riverside Family Project 2017 started in May and our working title for the project is: Fantastical Family Stories: The Living Photo Album.
We are working with all those families who expressed an interest in be involved, whose stories will shape the performance.
