At the heart of the school is our 500-plus seater professional theatre, which provides a real-life West End theatre experience for all students. Equipped with professional stage lighting and sound, students regularly have the opportunity perform and learn the skills, techniques and application used within all aspects of theatre. Students have opportunities to work closely with industry professionals, from leading musicians and vocalists, to performers in London’s West End.
Completed in 1997, the new theatre really allowed the musical and theatrical ambitions of Westholme to flourish. Named after the then Principal Mrs Lillian Croston, it continues to play an important role in daily life at Westholme in areas such as drama, dance and musical lessons and rehearsals, whole school assemblies, or guest speaker appearances amongst others. Productions and concerts are held in the magnificent settings of the Theatre every year, drawing in hundreds of attendees in the audience and giving our students the opportunity to perform on a fantastic stage with some of the best equipment and facilities around.
