Spotlight Performing Arts Academy - New for September 2024!

We are very excited to introduce our new Spotlight Performing Arts Academy. This brand-new programme will welcome its first cohort in September 2024. The unique Spotlight Performing Arts Academy will focus on developing the passions and interests of students within all strands of Performing Arts, namely Music, Dance and Drama. 

This programme is not just about the performers - it will also suit aspiring directors, managers, choreographers, and composers. 

In addition to the newly renovated dedicated Performing Arts area, which boasts two drama studios, a Mac Suite, Practice Rooms and Recording Studios, a Dance Studio and an Amphitheatre (coming soon!).

All Key Stage 3 students at Northampton Academy receive Music, Dance and Drama subjects as part of their curriculum; however, as a member of Spotlight, they will receive further opportunities through an extended day with extra-curricular opportunities in all aspects of these subjects, which will also include exciting projects with the Royal Shakespeare Company and its representatives. 

All Spotlight Academy students will work towards an Arts Award qualification during their journey through school, one at each Key Stage. This qualification will aid them in developing their knowledge and understanding of their chosen art form and build essential skills for success in 21st-century life.

We expect all Spotlight Performing Arts students to participate in extra-curricular classes after school until 4.30 pm at least three times a week.
