Self-expression and the ability to communicate with confidence are crucial tools for life, so music and drama are an essential part of our educational approach at Warminster. Our Music and Drama Departments have an enviable reputation and the quality is consistently high.

A large proportion of pupils receive instrumental, vocal and drama lessons. With over 40 performances a year, our pupils have numerous opportunities to perform in concerts, drama productions and to be involved in large scale musical theatre extravaganzas, highlighting their talent at all levels. The Flagship musical event each year, Cabaret, brings a huge proportion of the school together to celebrate the huge variety of music on offer.

The Music and Drama departments work together closely producing highly acclaimed versions of productions such as Mary Poppins, The Lion King, Private Peaceful, Tristan & Yseult, Little Shop of Horrors and for 2024 Matilda Jr.

The Drama Department also offers a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities for all including drama productions, festivals, workshops and theatre trips. Upper Sixth drama pupils have performed on the Royal Mile, as part of the Edinburgh Festival. The show – devised, planned and performed by the pupils – was given a four star review in the Theatre Guide London.
