Art provides an opportunity for practical work, both in two and three dimensions. Pupils are exposed to a wide range of materials. Themes and projects are closely linked to artists' work and an understanding of Art History, as well as cross-curricular and cultural studies.
Pupils are encouraged to use direct observation and to research, develop and evaluate their own ideas using appropriate resources. Art aims to offer inspiration and interest through an enthusiastic and enjoyable approach.
All girls are given the opportunity to enjoy making music at an early age. This is achieved through singing, learning to read music, playing descant, treble and tenor recorders and accompanying songs with glockenspiels and percussion instruments.
Girls are also encouraged to compose and perform their own compositions. The older girls study the history of the orchestra and composers.
There are two Choirs, Junior (6-8 years) and Senior (8-11 years) which meet once a week, when part singing is introduced. The Choirs often perform in concerts and festivals.
Instrumental lessons are offered to girls from Reception onwards. Girls choose from piano, flute, clarinet, violin and electric violin, cello, ukulele, guitar and electric guitar.
Drama is an integral part of the curriculum from Little Bramley, through Pre-Prep and up to the girls' final year. All girls are encouraged to perform from an early age through assemblies, concerts and productions which run throughout the academic year.
A drama club meets every week and many girls opt for specialist Speech and Drama lessons, which allow them to prepare for the LAMDA exams taken each year.
