The Arts at Belmont
Whether you are an aspiring thespian or musician, Belmont has a host of opportunities to get involved with, from orchestras to art clubs.
Along with the recreational Drama clubs we also have the LAMDA series, where pupils can gain accredited qualifications in speech and language courses. Each year group will have their own play or musical, with the pinnacle being the Year 8 musical.
Art is encouraged in all forms at Belmont with many of the pupils’ artwork featured on the walls around the school. There are a range of creative clubs within the Activities Programme as well as invitational clubs for Scholarship preparation, culminating in the Year 8 Scholar Art Show.
