No - we have chosen not to go down this route. Whilst it may sometimes work for some schools we believe it has the potential to be seen as elitist and create a ‘premier league’ and ‘junior league’ of pupils which can be divisive with only the Competition team getting the opportunities to perform. Having said that, we have many pupils who like to enter Highland and Stage competitions as individuals and the school fully supports them and offers coaching and private lessons to prepare them.

We encourage all our pupils to work hard and be the best they can be, whether that’s in class , on stage, in an exam or at a competition.
