Performing Arts Extra-curricular

The extra-curricular programme for Performing Arts is now up and running! There are a range of exciting opportunities in dance, drama and music for pupils to take-up and develop skills, take part in performances and make new friends. Groups run during lunchtimes and afterschool. If pupils have any questions all they need to do is speak with their dance, drama or music teacher to find out more. It's never to late to start!

CPAN - Cotham Performing Arts Network

We are very proud of the range and variety of extracurricular activities that we offer at Cotham School, as well as the excellent standard of the performance opportunities we provide for your children to showcase their skills and talents.

One of the things that has made these evenings so special in the past has been the support of Cotham Performing Arts Network (CPAN), our parent support group for the Performing Arts.  They do an amazing job providing refreshments at all our events. This has been a significant fundraiser for Performing Arts and also added greatly to the events, making them so much more sociable and enjoyable for the audiences.

Funds raised by CPAN in the past have bought a number of CD players and Camcorders as well as contributing towards Stage Lighting and Music Technology equipment for the school.

If you are interested in supporting at Performing Arts events then please get in touch with CPAN via the email address below: CPAN@cotham.bristol.sch.uk

Thank you and we look forward to your support!
