The Arts

The performing arts are truly alive and well at Crackley. Specialist teachers inspire children to discover and explore new talents through weekly drama and music lessons. When they are ready they can join the school choir and orchestra, or take up a wide range of musical instruments with our visiting music teachers.  They can showcase their growing skills through a range of performances  from community events and assemblies to school productions and concerts. 

We find that even the most reluctant performers blossom in this safe and fun environment. The benefits are great both inside and outside the classroom and experience at this early age builds confidence and develops skills which can be put to good use in the years to come.

Every year our pupils excel in the LAMDA and Music exams with many earning distinctions for their efforts.

The whole school productions at the end of the Summer Term which are professionally staged at a local theatre, are phenomenally ambitious and successful and each year seem to amaze and delight audiences in equal measure!

                                                          • Nuneaton Festival Applauds Crackley's Talent
                                                            This week Mrs Wildey (J1W Class Teacher and Drama Coordinator), Miss Kefalas (Teaching Assistant and Drama Coach) and 14 excited pupils from our Choral Speaking Club made the short journey to Nuneaton to contest the prestigious Nuneaton Festival of Arts, a cauldron of competitive oration for children of all ages, and adults.
                                                          • J3 and J6 Easter Service Wows Audience
                                                            Crackley Hall's music and drama team never cease to deliver unsurpassed quality productions; events that are testament to the children’s hard work, dedication and most able instruction.
                                                          • Musing On Mosaics - J4V Produce Timeless Classic
                                                            With the forthcoming ISA Midlands Art Festival on the horizon, Mrs. Van-Zyl, inspirational Art Coordinator and J4V Class teacher, was keen to produce a collaborative art piece that was informed by the children's recent work on Roman and Greek Mosaic Art.

                                                          "I just wanted to put down in writing how much my husband, and I enjoyed the concert last night. It was so lovely to celebrate all the children's musical talents in an evening that was both slick and professional, yet also very relaxed.

                                                          It was clear that the children had worked extremely hard and were very proud to perform infront of their audience. Some of the musical talent is just outstanding, yet it was also lovely to enjoy the performances of those who are less confident or haven't been learning for as long."
