The Performing Arts team is a highly successful, forward-looking team, committed to
excellence and the raising of achievement for all students. The team consists of three
musicians, two Drama and two Dance specialists. Together the team deliver our
curriculum, extra-curricular and community activities. All students have timetabled
Music, Dance and Drama at Key Stage 3 and we run Music, Dance, Drama courses at
GCSE. Performing Arts have always been a central part of our work as a school and
there is a very high level of student and staff involvement. We have a superb
performance space that seats 300 and has high quality lighting and sound systems.

the school. We are proud because it sums everything that we believe in. The motto on
the badge says ‘Ut Fili Lucis Fiatis’ and it means ‘to become children of the light’, and
that is the reason we exist as a school. We believe that every young person who walks
through our doors has enormous potential. Our staff work hard to help students to

Everyone at The Earls High School supports students to make as much academic
progress as possible so that they are equipped for the next stage of their education or

can communicate effectively, have the resilience to carry on when things get difficult,
work effectively as member of a team and develop their leadership skills. We want
students who leave us to be kind, compassionate and caring individuals; people who
will support and help their neighbours and make a significant positive contribution to
Halesowen or whatever community they choose to live in.
If we develop these three qualities in the young people who choose to come to our
school, we can feel content that we have done our job well.
