The Arts at King's
At King’s, Performing Arts and Visual Arts are a fantastic way to channel and grow the creative energy and talent that lies within each individual. The power of voices singing with heart and the magic of young people finding expression through dance, movement and the creative arts is just part of our program.
From drama and music to painting and sculpture, every student is encouraged to express themselves through creative mediums. For students in Year 6-Year 12 who want a real taste of the theatre, King’s offers courses in musical theatre and dance, hosting a major biennial school production. This enables them to showcase musical, acting and dancing talent and get a firsthand experience of ‘strutting the boards’ in professional theatres, with full sound and lighting effects. All Junior School students participate in the annual Nativity performance.
More than a third of King’s students undertake private instrumental music or voice tuition. King’s offers a wide range of vocal and instrumental ensembles for students to participate in and pursue their love of music - including strings, concert, rock and jazz bands. Students regularly perform at arts evenings and exhibitions, recital nights, weekly Chapels and lunchtime concerts, celebration and awards evenings, cabaret nights, assemblies, parent meetings and community events, such as Christmas on the Hill.
