Many students come to Lochwood desiring to learn a craft for the fun and enjoyment of it only. These students are part of the Recreational division here at Lochwood.

The Recreational division is designed for students of all ages and ability and even though they are still held to the same high standards of other students at Lochwood, these students are given more leverage in designing their individual lessons. Recreational division students are given the same performance and assessment options as all other Lochwood students. Students in the recreational division are encouraged to participate in extracurricular workshops and classes in order to fully enjoy the performing arts field. The recreational student is offered more group classes in which to interact with others who are learning just for the joy of learning a new skill.
