Outside the Classroom


In 2017, we opened a new, £3.3m Performing Arts Centre in the heart of our campus. Available to pupils throughout the College, the complex, named The Griffin Centre, provides industry standard performance and rehearsal space for students to practice, perform and nurture their creative talents.

Junior School pupils have weekly drama lessons and the Otters (Nursery to Year 2) perform every year in their Nativity and Easter show. Years 3 to 6 take part in a musical production in the Summer Term. In many cases, pupils are invited to participate in Senior productions. Recent Junior School productions include Peter Pan, The Wizard of Oz, Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies, Porridge, Pirates of the Curry Bean and Rock Bottom.

Senior School pupils can take part in two main performances each year which alternate between plays and musicals. Recent productions include One Man, Two Guv’nors, Macbeth, Jerusalem, Footloose, Amadeus, Our Country’s Good , And Then There Were None, Our Day Out and The Crucible. The Seniors' current production is, We will Rock You.


Drama Scholarships can be applied for preceding Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12 entry.
