I thoroughly enjoy my role as Head of Performing Arts. I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing staff, students and practitioners on various Performing Arts projects. INSPIRE Tours and performances are my favourite! We have performed at The Menin Gate in Belgium, toured to Germany, participated in the 2012 Paralympic Torch Lighting Ceremony, participated in the feature film for Sign2Sing 2017 and many, many more! We are very proud of our students and value talent and commitment to all the Performing Arts disciplines as well as the many production roles that support us so well. We are especially please to have used our productions to raise so much money for some very worthy causes.

I am a drama teacher (plus a bit of music and geography!) and I help to co-ordinate the technical side of things. I particularly enjoy units such as documentary theatre and working with Year 7 about WWII and the evacuees.

My first two years at the Cottesloe school have been really enjoyable, in particular the performances. I love running the choir and orchestra and enjoy creating ensembles for GCSE.

Leach S Mrs Lansley
I am a Drama, English and assistant SENCo at the Cottesloe School.  I enjoy supporting students to build in confidence and creativity.  I run a lunchtime drama club, that currently has 29 enthusiastic students, and work closely with the department on school productions.
