We are proud of our drama at the Prep School. In our new Performing Arts Centre we stage year group productions, giving girls lots of opportunities to develop their dramatic talents. Many girls achieve highly in the LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) awards. All girls enjoy a weekly drama lesson which enables them to develop confidence in speaking in front of an audience as well as expressing her feelings and developing communication skills through games and role play.
One of the highlights of our dramatic year is our Pre-Prep Christmas entertainment – a feast of dance, drama and song for guests. Another is the final performance given by our Year 6 girls at the end of their time with us where they demonstrate their zest for life and confidence in their final production.
