The Drama Department is heavily involved in the extra-curricular life of the college. Pupils at Key Stage 3 and 4 have opportunities to participate in a varied programme of workshops, competitions and theatrical visits. In addition the school has established the tradition of producing a play or pantomime every two years. This gives pupils the opportunity to showcase their talents in music, dance and drama. Successful school productions in recent years have included:

  • The Sound of Music

  • Musical Mayhem

  • Shakespeare’s Schools Festival

  • St. Paul’s Got Talent

In addition Year 12 Performing Arts students devise and present an original play for their GCSE course in May each year. This performance is staged for the school community and feeder primary schools in advance of the examination.

The Music Department plays an active role in developing pupils’ musical appreciation and ability at Key Stage 3.
In addition pupils have opportunities to develop their musical talent on an extra-curricular level through individual or small group tuition in woodwind and string instruments including guitar.
Pupils are entered for Associated Board or Trinity College examinations and are also given opportunities to perform at school functions and liturgical services.
In recent years GCSE Music has been offered as a twilight subject with 100% A-B pass rate.
