The boys have the opportunities for a great deal of Drama and Music both inside and outside the curriculum.
Our strings and wind schemes mean that by the end of Year 4 the boys have started learning two instruments. All the boys are in all the major Year group productions in Years 3, 5 and 6, where there is a strong emphasis on all the boys contributing and having their chance to shine. There are multiple ensembles and concerts (both grand and informal) and singing is at the heart of the school in our assemblies and year group performances.
We wish all the boys to leave the Junior School having learnt many skills in the Creative Arts but most importantly to be inspired to keep this appreciation throughout the College and well beyond. All the boys should know what it feels like to be a singer, a player and an actor by the time they leave the Junior School.
In 2019 Dulwich College was awarded Independent School of the Year for the Performing Arts, acknowledging the work and talent of the Drama and Music departments. The award was conferred by Independent School Parent magazine.
