The Arts

The purpose of all art is to explore the meaning and purpose of existence and in the Arts we find new ways of understanding the world, ourselves and our own place within it. To engage in the Arts requires a willingness to let go of ourselves, our preconceptions and our reservations, and be carried along by a spirit of creativity and imagination. It also requires self-discipline and hard work.

The main expressions of artistic endeavour at Blue Coat are music, drama, public speaking, painting and sculpture. Pupils’ endeavours in the Arts are highly successful and widely acclaimed, including internationally.

We welcome the support of parents and friends at all of our concerts, recitals, debates and exhibitions. Please see News and Events for details about forthcoming Arts events at Blue Coat.
