The York School's Arts programmes nurture the curiosity and creativity in Middle School students.

Creativity, reasoning, imagination, dexterity and intuition are developed as students learn to build bridges between verbal and non-verbal communication, logic and emotion.
The Middle School Arts programmes help our students:

  • develop a lifelong enjoyment of the arts
  • become informed, reflective and critical practitioners in the arts
  • understand the dynamic and changing nature of the arts
  • explore and value the diversity of arts across time, place and cultures
  • develop perceptual and analytical skills

In particular, we provide opportunities for students to create and to perform, both in the classroom and as part of our co-curricular programming. Students participate in arts afternoons/evenings, creativity afternoons and assemblies, musical and dramatic performances.
