The Arts

At Chantry the arts are an important part of our curriculum. We believe through rich and exciting arts opportunities, children are able to think critically and creatively, solve problems and work collaboratively.

By providing a wide-range of performance opportunities we develop children’s confidence. All children in KS2 learn an instrument and every year group from year 2 upwards works in partnership with an arts organisation e.g. the De La Warr Pavilion. We welcome artists and performers to our school and regularly take part in local arts events and festivals.

The arts enrich both our curriculum and the lives of the children at Chantry and we hope that the experiences they have across the arts, they will remember for life. We are very proud that our arts curriculum and the additional experiences we offer have been recognised nationally - we were recently awarded a Platinum Artsmark.
