Creative Arts – Art, Drama and Music

The Creative Arts are highly valued and an integral part of King’s High. Many of our girls find that they have a talent for one or more of the Creative Arts. This is nurtured by our staff and by distinguished visitors - poets, performers and artists - who provide inspiration and expertise, often through interactive workshops.


Our girls achieve excellent standards in their creative work, be it publicly examined or extracurricular. Music, Drama, Dance, Literature and Art are prized and girls participate in competitions, performances and exhibitions. Some girls specialise in these arts, winning prestigious awards, such as Oxbridge Choral Scholarships and scholarships to renowned music schools.

Creativity at King’s High is not just for those with special gifts. Our Ballet classes and Choirs welcome everyone who loves to dance and sing. We believe that creativity is life-enhancing. We want each girl to discover something she loves to do and to help her develop it so that it will bring her life-long enjoyment.

Opened by an Old Girl, Miss Catherine Bott in 2009, the Creative Arts Centre houses the Art, Design and Technology, Drama and Music Departments at King’s High. Furnished with the latest equipment and technology, it enables pupils to realise their creative potential in a superb environment. The school invested £3.7 million in the project that transformed the former St. Nicholas building into a stunning suite of performance and rehearsal rooms for Music, Dance and Drama, classrooms, Art and Design storerooms and offices, and enhanced Art and Design and Technology studios and facilities.
