We encourage all girls to develop all their talents and there are plenty of opportunities at Pipers for them to be artistic.
The Arts Centre opened in the Autumn Term of 2016 and is the location for the provision of our performing arts curriculum in a number of flexible teaching spaces. At the heart of the Centre is an impressive theatre which seats up to 280 people and is fully equipped with not only a large and flexible stage, including orchestra pit, but also state-of-the-art sound and lighting facilities. The outstanding technical facilities have been designed to provide the girls with the advantage of working within a professional theatre space. As well as being the venue for school productions, the theatre serves as a venue for talks and demonstrations from visiting speakers, allowing us to extend access to enrichment opportunities for all girls. The Arts Centre Café, managed by our School caterers, Holroyd Howe, provides a range of delicious and tempting food in fresh, modern surroundings. With ingredients sourced from local farmers, growers and artisan suppliers, Holroyd Howe pride themselves on offering a variety of innovative and creative food that is highly nutritious and enjoyable to eat.
External to the Arts Centre you will find our custom built dance studio, which is home to an eclectic mix of styles from classical ballet to jazz and modern dance. Girls can take advantage of our range of specialist art studios and workshops which provide the space and equipment they need to explore their artistic side.
Our Music Department provides an area for the girls to develop their talents on a variety of instruments. There is a wide range of extra-curricular groups for the girls to get involved in, including Gospel Choir, Jazz Band, Junior Choir and Instrumental Group.
