THE ARTS &
It is here that academics and activities meet. As well as being part of the curriculum or intimately linked to it, after-school, Wednesday afternoon and weekend activities as well as the arts are also something more and a rich part of students’ lives.
All Régents are encouraged to express themselves creatively. This is not only enjoyable, stimulating and rewarding in itself, but also helps to develop essential communication skills and self-confidence.
A tremendous range of instruments is taught, and students have the opportunity to join music ensembles, orchestra, choirs, and to perform in informal and formal concerts. We also organise music trips to local concerts. Art teachers are experienced specialists who teach a variety of disciplines including oil-painting, print-making, ceramics, textiles, photography, mixed-media work and sculpture, either as part of the academic curriculum or in the enrichment programme. Students have the opportunity to demonstrate their talent in art exhibitions and competitions.
All students can enjoy a custom-built dance and theatre space where classical ballet thrives alongside other dance forms and exercise classes.
Le Régent organises an exciting programme of productions involving all age groups throughout the year. The students also have the opportunity to participate in public speaking and reading competitions, which at an early age develop the key skill of clear, confident communication to a large international audience.
After-school, Wednesday afternoon and weekend activities introduce students to new ideas and to interests and skills beyond the curriculum. We pride ourselves on having a wide offering of exciting activities. Régents are encouraged to take part in as many as activities as they wish, however, their tutors ensure that regular academic commitments can be met.
