At Three Saints Academy Trust we believe that that the arts can play an exciting and important role in the educational experience of our pupils. We aim to enrich the quality of our teaching and learning through the arts, providing rewarding activities that inspire, inform, motivate, challenge and entertain. At Three Saints Academy Trust we recognise that involvement in the arts can help to develop the capacity to communicate ideas and feelings; enhance perceptual skills through responding, developing and evaluating and physical skills through control and use of movement. Furthermore the arts helps to foster a positive attitude in our pupils by developing a wide range of qualities such as cooperation, enthusiasm, passion, inspiration, tenacity and ambition. All pupils are given the opportunity to develop their own personal skill set within the performing arts. This is undertaken not only through the curriculum but also within a wide range of unique experiences and opportunities offered by the school. The Three Saints Academy Trust is committed to forming strong links with the creative industries, both within the local community and the wider world in order to maximise pupils’ experiences. Such experiences include St Ann’s has Got Talent and the end of year production, both of which take place at the Theatre Royal in St Helens and see pupils involved in all areas and stages of production and performance.
