One of the highlights of the School calendar is our fantastic Arts Festival season.

In an event that spans over the course of a month, our Arts Festival season showcases our pupils’ talents in the creative and performing arts. From School Plays to Musical Recitals, from our whole school Gym and Dance Extravaganza to Literary workshops featuring famous authors, the Festival has it all, culminating in our eagerly-anticipated Arts Invitational event to bring down the curtain each year.

Please take a look at the footage from our 2019 Festival below.
