All boys receive two music lessons each week and the pupils are encouraged to learn an instrument during their time here. The Music team are ably supported by 8 peripatetic staff who are all practicing musicians, bringing a wonderful vibrancy and realism to the Department.

The Senior Choir meets regularly for rehearsals each week and they perform, internally and externally, each term.

In the recently built Art and Design Technology block the boys have an enviable area within which to be creative. Pupils are given the freedom to explore different creative styles and materials while developing their individual design skills, from their first tentative thoughts to the finished article.

Through to Year 6 there are weekly Drama lessons for the boys. There are two major productions each year and pupils are encouraged to audition for these. As the boys get older, if they prefer the technical side of production, then they can be involved in the lighting, sound and backstage positions.
