The school is proud of all children achievements throughout their time at Milverton House and Performing arts begins with our youngest children. Our Pre School and reception children benefit from weekly Ballet and Drama lessons organised by tour in house team.
Children explore expressive and interpretive movement from a very young age. This will continue into Year One and Two in January with weekly lessons for all of our children. Later in the school term children will have the opportunity to take Pre Primary examinations and Infant Examinations in Drama.
