Academic achievement is only one aspect of fulfilling the educational needs of our students. We place importance on student involvement in a broad range of activities and entice our students to participate in a wide range of interests.

At Ravenswood, your daughter can experience an extensive and dynamic Performing Arts curricular and co-curricular program across Music, Drama, Dance, Speech and Technical Theatre, that encompasses students from all Year Groups. We believe that all students should have the opportunity to be creative and enjoy learning new skills with like-minded peers.
