Drama is a fun and exciting subject, offering students the chance to work creatively and fully explore their imagination at the same time as developing their intellect. The nature of the subject means that team work, sharing ideas and being independent in your planning are essential skills. Skills which we seek to develop in every student through carefully structured schemes. These abilities are essential in their adult life, self-reliance, working with others and an ability to problem solve under pressure, are all part and parcel of today’s world. To further expand the students’ experience, we have visiting theatre companies performing in our well-equipped auditorium, as well as regular visits to London’s fabulous theatre land.
Students who study Drama at a senior level are also encouraged to be involved in all aspects of the Department; watching all exam GCSE and A level pieces and offering feedback; running a team in the House Drama Competition or taking the technical lead in performance work.
