The school is firmly committed to a creative approach to teaching and learning and that is promoted through our innovative curriculum.

“Pupils say they are proud to be part of the school and lessons are ‘lots of fun and never boring’. Consequently, they enjoy school and attendance is above average.” Ofsted Report

Children are encouraged to question and think through a range of practical activities including model making, drawing and painting and undertaking scientific exploration.

Through our high quality arts curriculum, children are given the opportunity to perform and create a range of arts based work to help them gain a deeper understanding of a range of curriculum topics.

During a child’s time at St Philip’s, they will be given the opportunity to take part in a range of productions including: Christmas and Easter plays, performances at the Parr Hall and Y6 pupils participate in an end of year production, which is part of their farewell to St Philip’s.
