Visual Arts, Music, Drama and Dance feature strongly in both the Altrincham College curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities offered to pupils, such as:
- Arts and Theatre Clubs,
- School Choir,

- Percussion Band,

Each year there are a variety of drama and musical performances, which parents and students are invited to attend, including the Christmas Concert, a major annual production, and A-Level performances.
Recent shows have included Matilda, Hairspray, Joseph's Technicolour Dreamcoat, The Wizard of Oz, Godspell, Annie, Our Day Out, High School Musical and Oliver, all staged to great acclaim (see our gallery below).
Music lessons are offered to students on an individual or group basis and are available at a heavily subsidised cost, allowing students to progress through to graded music examinations level.
A new music and sound studio opened in school in 2011; run in conjunction with Trafford Music Service, to offer the very best in state of the art rehearsal and recording facilities, and as such we are able to offer students the chance to experience:
- Steel Drums,
- Violin / Viola,
- Woodwind (Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone).
