Academic, Music and the Arts
The Art Department’s collaboration with Holy Trinity Primary School will start up again in January 2022. Our Head of Art has a group of artists whose Friday afternoon service activity currently involves making art for sale in aid of an orphanage in Kenya, and will turn its focus to teaching art to primary school children.
The previously very successful collaboration between Bishop Fox School and our Classics Department, which saw a number of gifted and talented pupils from that school getting GCSEs in Latin will, we hope, resume in September 2022.
Our Head of Music is keen to get a group of musicians together to teach music in local primary schools. He is also keen to involve musicians from local schools in our burgeoning symphony orchestra (one student from Richard Huish has already joined the orchestra).
During 2021, we hosted the Taunton Young Dancer of the Year, Walker Performing Arts Camp, and will be hosting the choir, Amici, for a concert and the Cotley Pony Club Triathlon.
