Performing Arts

Here at Dauntsey's, everyone can get involved in music, drama and dance, and you will find first formers mingling with sixth formers, and future professionals working alongside people who simply want to get up and 'have a go'. With concerts or recitals most weeks, six or seven drama productions every year and a major dance showcase, there is plenty of opportunity and choice.

The performing arts are among the School’s great strengths, attracting audiences of more than 500 for major concerts or shows. They are so much a part of the fabric of life here that pupils arrive for rehearsals straight off the astro turf or out of the classroom, ready to change mental gear and take up an entirely different challenge.


Over the years I have struggled with confidence but at each audition I've gone to I've become stronger and stronger.
