Drama enables pupils to develop their self-confidence and learn advanced performance skills. Through mime, improvisation, games, devised sketches and scripted performance, our pupils are given a wide range of creative opportunities where they can flourish.
LAMDA is also hugely popular in the School with pupils regularly gaining Distinction at Grade 5 (GCSE level). This assists greatly in preparing candidates for Drama scholarships to their senior schools.
There is an Upper School Play and/or an Upper School Musical for Years 7 & 8 in the Autumn or Summer terms, a Year 6 Production in the Autumn term. Musical plays create great opportunities for our orchestras and young musicians to be supported by professionals in providing the musical accompaniment. A balance is kept between musical and non-musical plays.
