Our outstanding performing arts curriculum brings out the best in students’ musical and dramatic abilities and gives all students a chance to shine.


Regular specialist music, drama, dance and visual arts teaching is an integral part of our academic programme. Our Primary School production and Arts Festival are calendar highlights, as are the much-anticipated performances from our Junior and Senior Primary Choirs, groups and solo artists at regular school assemblies. A full and vibrant schedule of itinerant music lessons is available, as well as Speech and Drama exams through Trinity Guildhall.


ACG Sunderland College students are extremely passionate about the arts, immersing themselves fully in the exciting opportunities we offer. We have a College jazz band, rock bands and a Chamber Orchestra, and hold an annual College production which students love participating in, either on stage or behind the scenes. A wide range of music lessons are on offer, as well as Speech and Drama exams through Trinity Guildhall. Debating and speech competitions also prove popular.
