About music and culture

Music and cultural activities form an important part of life at St Paul’s Collegiate School. The school has an established drama department, itinerant music teachers offer lessons on all instruments and every Year 9 student learns an instrument of his choice.

There is also an opportunity to extend and develop musical skills by joining a number of excellent groups including the chapel choir, orchestra and bands.

It is vital that students, especially senior students, do not over commit themselves. However we encourage students to be involved in at least one cultural activity per year.

Monday and Wednesday are set aside as cultural days when, for example, production and choir rehearsals take priority over sport practice.
