The arts at Medbury School
- Music binds us together with invisible threads
Medbury School has an excellent reputation for its music programme, both choral and instrumental, and receives strong support from the school community. The annual 'Music Evening' is a highlight of the school year, showcasing Medbury's promising music talent.
Medbury's well-qualified Music Director and other specialist music teachers ensure that every boy has the best opportunities to experience music. Instrumental tuition is available from Year 4, and may include younger boys at the discretion of the Music Director and Class Teacher.
The purpose built music facilities in The Medbury Centre are superb. Medbury's three choirs perform regularly at local and international music festivals, and lead the school at its church services. The Medbury Orchestra plays at both school and community events, whilst the Quartet, Chamber Ensembles, together with the Concert Band, Rock Bands and Jazz Band, are all popular with the boys and tutored by skilled musicians.

At Medbury, boys in all year levels receive Art tuition and are encouraged to develop their individual creativity. Our art programme is run by a specialist Art Teacher in the Art Studio, enabling the boys to enjoy a variety of artistic styles and genre.
The boys have an opportunity to explore many facets of art including painting, drawing, clay modelling and sculpture, print making, fibre and fabric, collage, design and graphics.
Medbury boys' work features around the school, in art exhibitions and competitions held in the city and further afield.
Medbury has an outstanding reputation for drama. Under the direction of the Head of Drama, all boys have the opportunity to explore and use their creativity, through imaginative play, creative movement and dramatic performance.
Class performances are regular events. The Senior School Musical Production is held biannually, allowing boys to learn and experience the excitement of performance in music and drama.
