Creative Arts at Talbot School

“Creativity is seeing what others see and thinking what no one else ever thought.” – Albert Einstein

Andre Farret, is a specialist Music and Drama Teacher for Talbot Specialist School.

Students study a wide range of performance skills, music genres, drama and art techniques. Learning is assessed utilising P scales, photographic/video evidence and school assessment tools and lessons are enriched by a wide range of visits from musicians, artists and theatre groups. We work hard to form partnerships with other Creative Arts providers, thus giving students numerous opportunities to perform both in school and as part of prestigious national festivals.
