Teaching Initiatives
We provide free taster lessons for all students in two different instruments and award bursaries for exceptionally talented students for Music lessons. All GCSE and A level students are provided with part funded instrumental lessons.
Glenthorne became a designated Specialist Arts College in September 2002 and is a centre of excellence in the Performing Arts. We have excellent facilities including fully resourced Music rooms, a Music technology suite, Recording Studio, Media Suites, Drama studios with full blackout, light and sound facilities as well as a fully equipped Dance studio.
We provide a full and exciting programme for Gifted and Talented Performing Arts students. We give them the opportunity to fast track courses to enable them to progress as quickly as possible. Students have the opportunity to attend ARTS ONE, a gifted and talented Saturday school which is run in conjunction with Sutton Theatres. Extension classes enable students to develop their skills and the Summer school provides students the opportunity to work with professional artists.
Community courses have included stage lighting, sound, make-up and salsa dance and are taught in a very practical and exciting way. Through Lamda Club, students have the opportunity to take examinations in Speech and Drama. Regular theatre visits are organised as are visits to classical concerts. There is an annual European Performing Arts tour and a week long Arts festival for all KS3 students. 
We have strong community links and work closely with Sutton Arts Council, Sutton theatres and students have the freedom and chance to perform in professional venues and to work regularly with professional artists.
