I am a Head of Expressive Arts within an outstanding school with 12 years experience of setting up key stage 3 and 4 dance and drama curriculums in schools. I have a passion for developing teaching and learning in Performing Arts and I have a proven track record of successful outcomes at key stage 4 using my curriculum model. I believe you must create a strong foundation of skills at key stage 3 to prepare students for success at key stage 4.
