We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to be creative and constructive and also to appreciate and enjoy the Arts. School is a place where teenagers can be encouraged to find new interests and to learn about the rich variety of creative endeavours.
Shirburnians are introduced to Creative Pursuits via the curriculum but what is special is the way in which so many boys become involved in the extra-curricular activities which are on offer.
The range of opportunities is hinted at in these web pages, but it is through the individuals and groups who pick up the long-standing Sherborne tradition of inventiveness and creativity that the most vibrant examples occur. Every year we see productions in the theatre, artistic exhibitions by boys or musical performances which dazzle. Every year there are original designs, poems, compositions, songs and short stories which are shared with others and which add to the mix.
Not surprisingly, large numbers go on to be creative adults and a glance at our list of alumni will indicate how many actors and writers have been nurtured at Sherborne. Perhaps more important is that all boys are exposed to Creative Arts and thus have the chance to be life-long enthusiasts.
