Drama & Music at Dr Challoner's High School

The wise musicians are those who play what they can master
Duke Ellington

Music plays a major role in the life of Dr Challoner’s High School, thanks to a thriving and extensive extra-curricular programme which caters to all levels of ability.

We currently boast five choirs, two orchestras, a wind band and a variety of instrumental chamber ensembles, all of whom rehearse on a weekly basis and have multiple opportunities to perform both in school and within the wider community.  In collaboration with Dr Challoner’s Grammar School, we also form a Joint Choir and Orchestra and the ever-popular Swing Band!

In addition to a busy concert calendar, we are also keen to celebrate our musicians elsewhere, leading foreign tours on a regular basis: this year our Senior Choirs will be serenading Venice and Verona at Easter prior to Swing Band’s trip to Germany’s Mosel Valley in July.


The Drama Department at Challoner's High is delighted to share with you our very first virtual showcase.

We invite you to sit back and enjoy a variety of monologues, duologues and group scenes covering a multitude of theatrical genres and styles. Our programme includes staged extracts taken from published plays and examples of original theatre devised by the students themselves. To access the performance videos, please follow the hyperlinks found in each section.
