The School has entered many festivals, competitions and summer fÍtes, and staged many productions (see Archive). At every appearance the students do extremely well and put every ounce of energy into their performance. Additionally, this energy continues to flourish when it comes to exams as the pupils regularly achieve excellent examination results in the many sessions held throughout the year.
As well as the traditional School showcase, which runs every three years in Birmingham, pupils have been performances at various London theatres and abroad. Pupils were extremely excited at being given the wonderful opportunity to appear in "Stars In Our Eyes" at Her Majesty's Theatre in Londonís West End. Since the initial West End appearance in 1999, under Simoneís choreography the School has performed 6 routines at Her Majesty's Theatre, 1 routine at Saddler's Wells Theatre, 2 routines in "Stars in the Round" at Londonís Royal Albert Hall and performed a 20 minute show on stage at Disneyland Paris.
