Everyone who wants to has the opportunity to perform at Abingdon Prep. In a typical school year there are seven productions across all age groups. These range from the Pre-Prep Nativity to the Senior Section performing a musical or play which is staged at Abingdon School’s Amey Theatre with a full cast and musicians.

Recent productions have included SmikeJoseph, Oliver! and Animal Farm in the Senior Section, Daniel and the Lions’ Den and Dragon Days in the Middle Section and A Miracle in Town for Pre-Prep. The Middle Section also enjoys soirees based around drama and music, exploring performance poetry, Shakespeare and comedy sketches.

Pupils from Reception to Year 6 are also taught drama as part of the academic curriculum and senior pupils have weekly performing arts lessons combining music and drama.
