Creative & Performing Arts

Our confident pupils enjoy the arts. Just you try and stop them!

Our arts teaching is recognised with an Arts Council Artsmark award. The Prep School’s choirs, orchestra and percussion clubs meet weekly so that musicians can rehearse for lunchtime and evening concerts, whole-College assemblies and other performances.

Our Infant and EYFS departments create a wonderful Christmas nativity and annual drama. Our junior pupils script, choreograph and compose a high quality summer production. All the children are involved, becoming committed cast and backstage team members. Not everyone can play the lead role, but we can ensure that all of our children know the value of their contributions to the whole production.

Art, drama, dance and music are all given curriculum time. In addition, all pupils in Year 3 are loaned a musical instrument and provided with complimentary weekly lessons to encourage a love of playing and to uncover more of those hidden talents.
