The Arts

Gordonstoun has a tradition of encouraging all students to become involved in the arts. In terms of self-expression, self-awareness, attainment and interpersonal skills, the arts are central to the School's holistic ideals.

Music and Drama provide the life and body for the health and vitality of the whole community. The dramatic life of the School is a continuously evolving process of experience. There are school productions staged in various locations but performances are also presented by houses, year groups or other smaller units. The emphasis is on participation, teamwork, personal development and quality, particularly when Drama links with Music to stage one of the musicals which are a special Gordonstoun strength.

Gordonstoun is the only school in Scotland where Dance is taught as part of the academic, examinable curriculum and results are of a very high order. There are many other opportunities for students to experience and enjoy dance in various forms which may develop into performance items or exist purely for recreational purposes.

The Ogstoun Studios and Theatre provide the venue for all dramatic and dance activities within the School. Facilities include a dance studio with full-length mirrored walls and sprung floors; several small intimate studio spaces for drama rehearsals and changing rooms and the new state of the art Ogstoun Theatre. The 200 seat purpose-built theatre is an outstanding performance space, equipped with a very high technical and lighting specification and is the ideal space for the coming together of the Drama, Dance and Music Department in their frequent productions and performances.
