Performing Arts

Our girls enjoy a vibrant calendar of creative opportunities with Music and Drama performances throughout the academic year.

The School Hall has a stage complete with state of the art lighting and sound systems and there is also a purpose built Drama Studio.

Girls can take Drama at GCSE and Theatre Studies at A-level, Speech and Drama lessons are very popular and many girls take LAMDA exams as well as taking part in one of the musical or drama productions staged each year.

Musically, girls are spoilt for choice. The School has a specialist music building equipped with over 15 practice rooms.

We have specialist teachers for the traditional instruments, including singing, and girls have the opportunity to join our choirs, vocal groups, orchestras, wind band, swing band and other musical groups.

There are Concerts every term, plus opportunities to play at other School events.

Girls can choose from over 45 activities including the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme, jewellery making, creative writing, debating, Russian, photography, pottery and Prince's Trust.

Pupils are also actively involved in PeaceJam, York Youth Council, Model United Nations, World Challenge, York Independent State School Partnership (ISSP) and school charities.
