The Arts at Glendowie College

The college offers a comprehensive Arts Programme via quality arts activities and events.  Students are offered opportunities to participate in art exhibitions, musical groups and bands, dance and drama groups, debating, photography and many more.

Our regular musical and dramatic productions are renowned for their quality and are a highlight of the school calendar.  A musical production is produced bi-annually, and a multi-disciplinary showcase alongside a national or international trip is available to Arts students every other year.
