Participating in Drama productions helps to develop a range of life skills in our pupils, including self-confidence, imagination, concentration and memory training. These skills are learnt subconsciously when learning lines or practising a stage show.
Each year, the Christmas productions, performed by every year group, are much loved and always something to look forward. Pupils, parents and staff invest enormous amounts of time and energy into making these events special for everyone involved.
The ability to speak publicly with confidence is an important life skill and we encourage all pupils to take part in LAMDA training and exams. We also give them opportunities to experience professional theatre productions through our programme of trips and visiting theatre companies.
For children who are particularly interested in applying for Drama scholarships at their chosen senior school, we offer a Drama Scholars club where they hone their performance skills.
