P.A Programme

Performing Arts Programme

The Performing Arts Programme at Crestwood School is designed to nurture a student’s aptitude for Music, Drama or Dance. Students may choose to focus on one particular Art, or a mixture depending on their individual talents. Our primary aim is to help students gain as much experience in the spotlight as possible. Students will perform at prestigious venues across the country, they will support local community events and organisations as well as taking part in all school shows and productions.
