Barking Abbey School is recognised nationally and has been involved in high profile projects working with The Royal Ballet School and Professional Dance Companies such as: SmallPetiteKlein, Retina, Wayne McGregor | Random Dance and Union Dance.

We have a very clear Gifted and Talented system in place that enables talented students to progress, remain challenged, provide enrichment and increases students performance opportunities. The system is first implemented in Yr. 6 where talented students from our primary feeders are identified and invited into our youth dance company, Gener8. Students can then progress into our Yr. 7 and 8 company, Recall! And then on into our Yr. 9, 10 and 11 company, Captivate. In the sixth form students are invited to attend an audition for the Barking Abbey Dance Academy.

The Barking Abbey Dance Academy is a full time programme of contemporary dance technique, choreography and performance that supplements the academic timetable for students aged 16 – 19. Students work with many dance companies in residence and professional dance artists to create work for performances. This year we have performed in many regional dance platforms and festivals in professional venues.
