Performing Arts

The main skills the students leave us with, and what we base our Performing Arts curriculum on, are:


  • Communication: The ability to perform a complex character with voice, gesture & physicality
  • Trust: To take direction without personality getting in the way, and take risks.
  • Teamwork: To work with a number of different cast members, to lead and be led.
  • Maturity: To work independently on a given project while understanding self.
  • Expression (Creativity): To create a piece of complex drama from any stating point
  • Evaluation: To be critically self and peer evaluative and be able to take professional criticism

Please see our Performing Arts News section and check back frequently for updates.


Please watch our video showcase below of Performing Arts at JMA in 2017-18.

@JMARobinson1, Oct 13
yes, especially around performance time, like I said the students want it so who are we to let them down?
@JMARobinson1, Oct 13
Its not me that wants to work at the weekend...its the students, and in the end...thats why we do what we do. They love it, they love the freedom of place where they can be in control of what they do. They focus more, we get more done and they come together. I work for them.
