Creative Arts

Art

Art at Royal Kings School is an exploration of the senses. Children’s talents are valued and nurtured in a warm and inviting environment. Extra-curricular activities have included Ceramics, Recycled Art, Painting and Drawing, Batik and Crafts; the door is always open to those keen enough for even more!

The key elements of art (Line, Form, Space, Shape, Texture, Tone and Colour) are visited in a wide range of ways throughout the school, in exciting projects such as papier-mâché parrots, ceramic bookends, Picasso portraits and printed books illustrated by our Year 4s, to name but a few. Specialist techniques are used regularly including print-making, batik, acrylic painting, metal embossing and digital image-making.

Whether it is designs for the School Play or making exciting displays around the school, the children are at the heart of our creativity, showing ambition is always in abundance.

Drama

Drama is one of the great forms of human expression. Our drama education at RKS begins naturally in the Early Years with learning through role play; eventually, it includes many elements of theatre.

During the year, pupils have the opportunity to pursue drama and public speaking through a whole host of activities, from staging a performance to achieving success in internationally recognised exams. Every single child in the school takes part in a yearly production, from the Grade R Nativity performed on stage in our hall to the Year 5&6 show staged at Royal Kings School
