An appreciation for music is developed from early age at St Peter’s College. From the Early Learning Centre through to Year 12, students are encouraged to explore music in a variety of forms and refine their musicianship skills. Music is a compulsory subject until Year 8 and is offered as an elective from Year 9.

Our music programs give students the opportunity to perform, compose and use their critical thinking skills to analyse a wide range of music. Our extensive ensemble program provides opportunities to perform in concerts and participate in interstate and overseas tours.

Each week more than 20 ensembles and choirs rehearse and around 500 students enjoy private music lessons.

In both the Junior and Senior Schools, students can participate in:

Orchestra | String orchestra | Choirs | Concert bands | Big bands | Rock bands | Dixieland band | Saxophone quartet | Percussion ensembles | Ensemble groups

Visual Arts

Our program includes painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics and computer graphics. This diverse offering enables boys to explore new and exciting art and design forms. We encourage an appreciation of art through hands-on activities in purpose-built studios in both the Junior and Senior Schools.

Through specialist teaching, artist-in-residence programs and exhibitions, students experiment and learn to develop unique ways to visually present their ideas and feelings. All students participate in art classes from Reception to Year 9 and it is an elective subject from Years 10 to 12.


The drama program at Saints fosters and develops creativity and imagination, providing opportunities for self-expression.

A wide range of dramatic productions develop skills in acting, directing, producing, staging and lighting. We also offer filmmaking, movement, mime and sound design.

Middle Years students study drama as a core subject and can participate in a School production. Drama is an elective subject for students in Years 10 to 12.
