The Arts are an important part of life at QEGS and while many pupils enjoy studying them at examination level, others enjoy them as part of their extra curricular enrichment.
Art is located in Hartley House where students are encouraged to work in a variety of materials. The GCSE and A level work is displayed throughout the school and students benefit from trips abroad to study famous works.
Design Technology allows students to develop artistic flair within the product design course where the addition of the latest computer technology can aid this process.
The Music Department offers pupils of all standards the opportunity to participate in a diverse range of ensembles which perform in numerous concerts, theatre productions and events throughout the year. Many pupils have individual instrumental lessons which enables them to perform in a variety of genres both in and out of school.
Although Drama is not an examined subject, it plays an important part in school life. Pupils are encouraged to take part in the main school musical as well as plays and they also have the opportunity to study drama further through ‘Little Voices’ drama school, who use our facilities.
