The Music Theatre program at the College promotes a diverse range of performance opportunities for participating students, allowing them to build up confidence and practical experience alongside their curriculum.


At the College our Gifted and Talented Music students don't just perform solo! Our music students bring the performances of our theatre cohort to life and those productions are only the beginning of the opportunities our music students have to play with what they practice.

Visual Arts

In our arts studios, a blank canvas doesn't stay that way for long. Our Gifted and Talented students interpret their lessons with their own unique perspectives, treating the community to an unending stream of new and inspiring art pieces to showcase in the theatre and collaborating galleries.
