The spiritual nourishment that can be found in The Arts is at the centre of our artistic ethos. We have weekly whole-school singing and a vibrant curriculum in music, drama and ADT from Year 7 to A Level, providing education across the artistic spectrum for all. We run a wide-ranging annual programme of events, from formal performances in the Moot Hall to rock gigs, jazz in the garden, weekly recitals in chapel and rolling exhibitions.
Other annual highlights include Arts Week with a series of competitions and performances, the school show (normally a musical), and our Arts Gala and Summer Concert, both joined with our Girls School.
Boys have the opportunities to play in orchestra, sing in choirs and take private instrumental lessons with our team of excellent peripatetic teachers. Our continued artistic growth is driven by the student-led Arts Council, who report periodically in our newly-formed Arts Journal.
Music Scholarships are available for outstanding musicians applying to Year 7 and Year 9 who can demonstrate strong commitment and enthusiasm.
