Firth Park is a Specialist Performing Arts school and thus all students study Music, Drama and Dance in Key Stage three.

The school offers a rich and varied enrichment programme in the Arts and students can take part in classes at lunchtime and after school. Clubs include Dance, Bands, Instrumental Lessons, Drama groups, Glee and Community Theatre.

A variety of professionals visit the school to run workshops and the Sound System programme runs for the very able students in Music. Students are encouraged to perform on a regular basis both in the classroom and after school and there are a variety of showcase events throughout the year and an annual school production. Students are encouraged to visit other schools and venues to take part in workshops and watch performances, and Arts Award students and Dance Leaders run workshops in the community for primary and Firth Park students.

Firth Park Community Academy is Sheffield’s lead Extended School. By working together in partnership with parents, families and the wider community we aim to ensure that the school is an important resource for all of the community.
