Performing Arts

Cast of the latest Holy Cross production on stage

There are a whole host of opportunities to get involved in Performing Arts at Holy Cross and you do not have to be studying one of the related A Level subjects.

Activities include musical productions, choirs, orchestra, student bands and performance evenings in dance and drama.

Theatre & Dance

If you like dancing there are extracurricular dance classes and for budding thespians, you can work towards LAMDA awards in drama. These are enrichment activities which have proven very popular over the last five years and are timetabled as additional to your A Level profile.


If you have a band or are interested in forming one, there are many new exciting recording and performing possibilities available. We have superb Music Technology facilities which include excellent recording facilities using industry standards.

If you play a musical instrument or want to improve your singing there are additional lessons available at Holy Cross. If you take Music at AS or A Level, these are free of charge.

College Productions

Concerts are given at regular intervals and there is an annual College production. This year we are staging an opera Hansel and Gretel' in December and the musical 'Miss Saigon' next April. In addition to this we have staged 'Unplugged' evenings, 'Musicollegey', a staff and student talent show, dance evenings and even created a Holy Cross Podcast.
