Arts

ISA Arts has been running competitions and events annually to give pupils and schools the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and participate against other schools encouraging the pupils confidence and creativity.

Fine arts and performing arts have been traditionally highly-valued at independent schools; and we believe they should continue to be nurtured and celebrated. With a wide range of competitions and events available we are excited to be expanding year on year bringing new opportunities for our schools to take part in.

New for 2019-2020

We are so excited to be bringing new events for the next academic year. Recognising schools work within Music is what we are looking to celebrate with our new ISA Young Musician Competition, as well as our Acapella Competition, enabling pupils to take part either on their own or as part of a group. Taking on a new challenge with our Public Speaking and Debating Competition and also expanding our events online with the addition of a Comic Strip Competition, Poetry writing, and Musical Theatre solo or duet singing competition.
Finally we wanted to develop competitions especially dedicated for younger pupils. Schools will have now new opportunities to take part with the Easter egg competition, Draw your school competition and the Autumn leaf competition.

We hope to see lots of enthusiasm for both new and old competitions within ISA Arts and very much look forward to seeing all the work created.
