Drama and Theatre Studies

Drama Department - WE MAKE. WE CREATE. WE SHARE.



Fresh, exciting and vibrant. The Drama department are committed to working creatively using the performing arts not only as a means of self-expression, but also to build skills beyond the arts. Led by highly skilled professional practitioners encompassing numerous specialisms, we offer a wealth of social, artistic, and practical sessions and programmes that aim to enrich the life experiences and thus the well-being of children and young people within the school.
