Music, Dance & Drama
Our excellence in creative and performing arts has been recognized by the Artsmark Gold Award and many of our girls go on to careers in Art and Design, Fashion, Music and Performing Arts.
Music is part of our way of life at Sheffield Girls'. We encourage and provide many opportunities for our girls to embrace musical opportunities throughout the school. Individual music lessons are offered to all girls, in instruments including piano, violin, viola, cello, clarinet, flute, acoustic guitar, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, tenor horn, euphonium, French horn, tuba, harp, drums and orchestral percussion.
Girls can also participate in orchestras, ensembles, choirs, wind band and string groups. Opportunities for performance range from playing in concerts and whole school events, to participation in local music festivals, to international trips and tours. Our Chamber Choir and Concert Band are frequently booked for performances locally and in Europe.
Dance is also a very popular activity at Sheffield Girls', with lunchtime movement clubs available for all ages across the school. Our popular annual Movement Evening provides a fantastic showcase opportunity for performers.
Drama plays a vibrant and active role in our school. Girls have the opportunity to take part in two whole school performances a year, and many of our girls also choose to take additional Speech and Drama lessons with a specialist teacher in preparation for LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) examinations.
Many of our older girls choose to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, which provides an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding programme of personal development.
Our younger girls enjoy days off timetable, such as the House Challenge Day, Bridge Building, Industry Day and Maths Day which develop their problem solving, teamwork and leadership skills. Whatever her interests, we will encourage your daughter to grasp the opportunities open to her with both hands and help her to see that there are no limits to what she can achieve at Sheffield Girls' and beyond.
