Every generation of KC students goes on to shape the future in some way. Confidence in creativity, rigour and discipline in practice, and a comfort with risks, mistakes and experimentation comes from KC’s creative and performing arts broad offer. An offer that is taught by actual practitioners – trained dancers, published authors, opera singers, musicians, costume designers, artists, photographers and graphic designers.


Our dedicated music centre is where musical talent thrives under the direction of talented teachers. Performance is an integral part of musicianship and students are encouraged to take part in events including an Open Mic Night, black tie Opera Gala and musical drama productions. Numerous and varied orchestras, choirs, bands and instrumental groups ensure pupils across the school perform together, and instrumental and singing teachers provide tuition for many pupils.


Dance is taught in our dedicated dance studio and in the Countess of Wessex Theatre, and is part of the curriculum from Year 7 and practiced across the whole school. The annual KC Dance Show allows all dancers and scholars to showcase their work and they have the opportunity to be part of the troupes that are integral to the main school productions.
