The Arts

The creative and performing arts are highly valued as an important part of our whole school ethos and curriculum.

At OBH we firmly believe that the arts foster imagination, risk-taking and curiosity – important aspects of creativity. Governments, businesses and communities now widely regard creativity and innovation as fundamental to social, economic, cultural and technological growth. We know that arts-based enterprises, for example, are acknowledged now as being vitally important to economic success. It follows that creativity in education is a necessity, nurturing imagination and curiosity – two vital elements that drive learning for us all. We aim to show through our exciting, innovative and high quality arts programme how arts and culture can enrich pupils’ lives and give them a real sense of well-being and fulfillment.
