Why Study Drama?
The Drama Department aims to help all students be creative and confident. We see Drama as a vital tool for social, emotional and cultural development. From year 7 all the way through to year 13, students are encouraged to be inquisitive and questioning as they develop their skills and understanding of drama.
We see that performance is an essential learning tool, as well as being fun, and we offer many opportunities to perform, at performance evenings and in shows at school, and also taking part in national festivals. In recent years students have performed at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, the Carriageworks in Leeds, the RSC in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick University, and this summer, students will perform in Disneyland Paris as part of a Dance and Drama department trip!
