Project information

In 1509 John Colet founded St Paul’s School to educate 153 boys “from all nacions and countres indifferently”, regardless of race, creed or social background. St Paul’s School is an independent school offering an outstanding, all-round education for gifted boys aged 7 to 18 years. They have been educating young scholars for over 500 years.

The Drama Centre which houses the department’s facilities and the Samuel Pepys Theatre, was unveiled in 2014. The new theatre and the studio spaces host more than fifteen productions to act in a wide range of styles and to learn technical skills in lighting, sound and projection. There is also an opportunity for some to turn their hand to directing; each year budding directors can take part in our Young Director’s Weekend and Showcase, for which boys select, direct and perform a short piece of theatre.

The building, with its glass-fronted foyer on two levels housing our impressive Metronome’s XXL, offers some of the best riverside views of anywhere on campus and completes the creative arts facilities of this music school near the Thames.
