In addition to studying music as a core subject, Wadhurst students are able to study instruments, including voice, through individual tuition. Performing both as an individual and as part of an ensemble form an important part of their learning.

Similarly, in addition to studying drama as a core subject, Wadhurst students wishing to spend more time on the stage have the opportunity to join the Drama Club which is designed to extend their classroom learnings.

Facilities and performance spaces for Wadhurst students include specialist drama rooms, the Wadhurst Deck and Wadhurst Hall along with the following venues:

  • the Wadhurst Music School houses a large, well equipped classroom, rehearsal spaces and individual tuition rooms.
  • the recently expanded and refurbished Myer Music School contains two performance and rehearsal areas, digital recording studios, and rooms for individual private instrumental tuition and for music classes.
  • Shelmerdine Music Studio is an underground rehearsal and teaching space located adjacent to Mem Hall that offers a soundproof studio and performance space, often used for recitals and less formal  lunchtime performances.

Wadhurst students also make use of The Old Melburnians War Memorial Hall which has a full theatre fit-out and a descending orchestra pit. It hosts many concerts, theatrical productions and other performances each year.
