The Performing Arts Auditorium will provide a facility that integrates the operational mechanics of a modern day theatre with a world class performance venue.



We are delighted finally to be constructing our new RPAC: Research Centre, Performing Arts Centre and Aquatic Centre. After many years in the planning, we look forward to the RPAC taking shape before our eyes. We envisage it will be ready for use in mid 2021.

This website gives you the specifications of our new Performing Arts and Aquatic Centres. They will enable our girls to train, work and perform in their areas of interest  to new levels of sophistication. In addition, our current Research Centres will be fully redesigned and refurbished to ensure they offer the best possible support for our girls' academic pursuits.

 Our aim is to develop young women of character and intellect who look to the future with confidence and optimism. The RPAC underpins that aim by offering facilities that will enable girls to develop their unique gifts and talents to the very highest levels.  This milestone project will transform opportunities for our girls for many years to come.
