Performing arts are central to the lives of very many pupils at the school. A wealth of musical opportunity includes 12 musical ensembles, instrumental lessons taught by 22 visiting teachers, musical masterclasses with internationally renowned soloists, and regular concerts at school and Symphony Hall.
Drama provision centres upon a junior and a senior production, into which pupils and staff pour tremendous effort. The productions are supported by pupils working to professional standards in the Stage Crew. There is also a lunchtime drama club. Towards the end of each year, pupils get together to produce their own dramatic production without direct staff involvement.
