Arts and Technology Faculty

“Everybody has creative capacity. The challenge is to know how to cultivate it”            Sir Ken Robinson


The Arts & Technology Faculty aims to provide a bespoke and exciting curricula suited to the needs and passions of all students. We aspire to enable all students to have the confidence to question and challenge themselves, to see not only problems, but also find their own solutions, to have a thirst for knowledge and to explore and experiment by learning through action and reflection.  


This is achieved through a broad, balanced and inclusive curricula that caters for all student needs and an extensive extracurricular programme that enables students to participate and develop and build external partnerships. The creative subjects still hold an integral role in the education of all students at Alderman Peel High School, with all KS3 students receiving 2 hours a fortnight each in music, drama, art, design technology and food technology. This is a total of 20% of the timetable, demonstrating the school's commitment to the creative subjects.


Each subject has its own identity, however within the faculty, the whole school is brought together through an array of whole school performing arts productions, restaurant takeovers, art exhibitions, STEM days and community concerts. Students are given opportunities to excel with experienced, passionate staff who demonstrate consistently good and outstanding teaching,  whom are further supported and inspired by an array of external industry specialists and practitioners that enlighten and raise the aspirations of all within the faculty.  


The Performing Arts Department is embedded within the faculty, offering many opportunities for all students through productions and extracurricular opportunities.  We are an Arts Mark School, and striving to achieve Platinum status, and the lead organisation for the North Norfolk Creative Education Partnership.
