Creativity is essential in today’s world of rapid change, global competition and digital communication. Creativity is closely linked with an awareness of the spiritual and at OLA all forms of creative talent are encouraged. OLA excels at encouraging pupils to look at the world from different perspectives, challenging received wisdom and generating ideas. This is seen in the quality of our art, music and drama but also in teaching and learning across the curriculum.
Talents need to be nurtured and allowed to flourish. We will do everything to encourage and accommodate ambitions within and beyond the curriculum. We have pupils with interests that range from painting and sculpture to fashion design, music, singing, dance, drama, composing, writing and the performing arts.
