Nurturing Talent

Published Tuesday 10th of February 2015 11:34:24 AM

Inspiring talent and nurturing creativity is one of the key benefits of sending your daughter to an all-girls school like St Mary�s Shaftesbury. Girls have the confidence to be themselves, explore all the creative opportunities around them and express themselves freely.

Recently, St Mary�s girls Isla Castle and Tina Jupp were featured as part of The Grosvenor Arms jazz evening in Shaftesbury, performing West End hits from musicals, Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, which was a real opportunity to showcase their talents to a public audience.

Both girls starred in the school production of West Side Story last year and regularly take part in schools concerts and shows. Isla has just produced her own professional recording of songs and Tina, a talented singer and dancer hopes to explore a career in the West End. Emma Croggon is another musical star in the making, who reached the regional semi-finals of The Big Music Project�s �Next Brit Thing� in Bristol last year, wooing the judges with her folksy voice and guitar.

It is not only in music that our girls show outstanding talent, but also in drama, with a wealth of hopeful and gifted thespians gracing the St Mary�s stage during school productions, most recently in �Oh, What a Lovely War!� to packed audiences.

Our next Open Mornings are coming up on Friday 6th March and Saturday 25th April. The Open Mornings are an opportunity for you to talk to staff, have a tour of the school given by the girls and to experience for yourselves a little of the unique atmosphere that is St Mary�s. You will hear about our ethos, our exceptional holistic approach to educating the whole person, the broad curriculum and the range of extra-curricular activities on offer.
