Performing Arts In Action

PERFORMING ARTS AT DUKE OF KENT SCHOOL

Our award-winning Performing Arts Department brings Drama, Dance and Music together in a powerful alliance. An exceptional range of opportunities, in and beyond the classroom, is open to all. Music, dance and drama are taught in every section of the School and Music and Drama are very popular subject options at GCSE. We are immensely proud of our participation levels: more than 80% of pupils participate in Performing Arts above and beyond our extensive curricular provision. Peripatetic instrumental and LAMDA lessons are hugely popular.

With just 315 pupils from 3-16 years, we have a thriving Arts scene: Senior Musical, Years 8 and 9 play, big band, bluegrass band, orchestra, four choirs, three vocal groups, instrumental groups (ocarina, ukulele, guitar, brass, string), rock bands, music tech., songwriting, ballet and lyrical dance clubs, cello babies, Year 2 violins. At any time of day, pupils can be found practising and rehearsing together, independently, in our Performing Arts Hall.

The Arts Calendar is buzzing: Senior School Musical, Years 8 and 9 play, Prep Christmas Concert, Pre-prep Nativities, Prep Production, Original Works Evening, Carol Concerts, Pre-prep Spring Concert and Dance Show, House Drama, Music Assemblies. House Music sees every Senior and Prep pupil performing with great house spirit and our Senior Choir had a successful tour to Liverpool in March 2022.

Performing at Duke of Kent School is a joyful and eclectic business, encompassing a huge range of genres and activities. Please have a look below at the  pupils' wonderful work.
