Middle College Performing Arts Productions.jpg

Starting in the Middle School, we offer a vast array of co-curricular activity as an integral aspect of the development of our early teens.  

We provide a wide range of opportunities in the Arts for students to discover and develop their potential, explore their interests and strive for excellence in their activity of choice. The Arts programme is well established and continues to grow in strength each year as new opportunities are provided for students to share their many talents. 


Saint Kentigern is well-resourced to support these endeavours with purpose-built facilities and specialist staff providing the launching pad for student success in the Arts.

The Music Centre provides superb facilities for individual and group practice as well as a performance auditorium for our extensive choral and instrumental programmes. Specialist music teachers offer individual tuition and we strongly encourage our students to explore and develop skills and talents in musical performance. There are many opportunities during the course of the year to play for an audience including Middle School Music evenings to encourage our learners.


A unique and appealing feature of the College music programme is the Saint Kentigern Pipes and Drums. The band plays a vital part of many events in the College calendar and forms one of Saint Kentigern’s strongest and proudest traditions. 

The Middle School stages two major productions each year; a Middle School Musical and combined Dance and Wearable Arts Show. Our performance venue, Elliot Hall, has professional sound and lighting equipment along with purpose-built drama studios. With two dedicated studios, one including a performance space, Dance has flourished at the College. Our Middle School dance students can also work alongside older students, when the Seniors take the leadership in student-led productions each year and when they assist with choreographing the dances for the Middle School Dance and Wearable Arts Show.

For those not so keen on the limelight but who wish to be involved, there are plenty of roles to play in lighting, sound, backstage, set construction, costuming, makeup and front of house.

 Students who study the Arts are well placed to go on to contribute their vision, abilities and creative energies not only to arts initiatives but also to industry, as companies seek creative solutions to ensure their place in a competitive world.
