Drama gives students the opportunity to empathise, sympathise and energise. Through exposure to different cultures, worldviews and moments in time students develop a framework in which to understand the world that they are shaping.
Students are challenged to grow as they explore concepts and ideas outside of own experience. They realise their creative capacity and the power of working collaboratively. Drama rewards everyone who steps out of their comfort zone with confidence, resilience and fulfilment.

The Drama Department enjoys the benefit of excellent facilities, including two fully-equipped Drama studios and a proscenium arch stage, which are well used to support the wide variety of drama activities in both performance and design.
Visits to the theatre are a strong tradition in the school, both as part of the curriculum and for pleasure. We also have professional companies performing in school on a regular basis.
We often stage whole-school productions.
Throughout the year drama groups perform smaller productions on our stage and in the two studios.
Both curricular and extra-curricular performances are well supported by friends and family.
