In the Senior School, co-curricular activity is integral to the pursuit of a well-rounded, balanced education for our young adults.

We provide a wide range of opportunities in the Arts for students to discover 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 in voice and most instruments - including the bagpipes! There are many opportunities during the year to play for an audience. A unique and appealing feature of the College music programme is the Saint Kentigern Pipes and Drums. The band is a vital part of many events in the College calendar and forms one of Saint Kentigern’s strongest and proudest traditions. 

Three major Senior School dramatic/musical productions are staged each year; a Senior School Play Series, a Senior School Musical and a Dance Production. 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 dance students take the leadership in student-led productions each year, such as our annual Dance Showcase and choreographing the dances for the Middle School Wearable Arts Show.

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

Students who are involved with the Arts at a Senior School level 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
