Drama is a subject that is recognised as vital to a child’s education at the High School. It is a compulsory part of the KS3 curriculum and aims to foster the confidence to experiment with devising and creating characters in lessons, to producing short assessed performances. Students also study the social cultural and historical background of plays and theatres. Drama can be taken at GCSE and A Level. Co-curricular opportunities include a full scale production each year. Past productions include West Side Story and The Crucible. The House Drama competition, directed by Sixth Form students, is a challenging project for students across the years, With our close proximity to London, we organise a range of trips and workshops for all year groups.
