Performing Arts Academy

A Place of Creativity

We value the development of self-expression and creativity as a key part of the girls' academic and personal development.

Our music and drama performances and productions form a core component of our students’ lives and education. They are of an exceptional standard, and many students continue to pursue their talents in these areas after leaving school.  

The superior facilities of our purpose–built Music School allows girls to explore their talents in full. It includes an auditorium where we host classes, private lessons, performances and other events, as well as a music tech room. It also boasts numerous soundproof practice rooms for individual music teaching.

A team of dedicated professionals is led by our Director of  Performing Arts Academy, Avril Crotty. Music is taught to the highest standard and everyone has the chance to participate in one of our choirs or orchestras. There is a packed performance schedule throughout the academic year.  

All our instrument and vocal classes are open to the public, We also have an adult’s choir so if you’re passionate about singing please come and join us!
