We love to perform and do so at every opportunity, whether it be professionally in the West End Theatre,
on TV or film, and at our monthly Open Mic Nights and charity events.
Pupils grow in confidence and ability through their many performances and create memories that last forever. The school is like a big family and our door is always open to graduates who come back year upon year to tell us about their colleges or the work they are doing and talk to our pupils passing on their knowledge and encouragement.
