It's true that Shelagh Elliott-Clarke Performing Arts School has a reputation for great technique and artistry, but there's no need to feel intimidated. Yes, we achieve it through drill, hard work and practice but also with guidance, development and enjoyment!
"Our priority is to encourage great technique and personal development in a family environment, moving forward together and giving students skills for life. A place to feel confident, lose inhibitions and creatively collaborate. Producing qualities not only as a great performer, but as a great individual."
Principal Suzanne Sharkey
