Drama forms part of the curriculum for all First, Second and Third Form pupils and Drama GCSE is a popular option as the syllabus offers a good balance of practical and text-based work. Theatre Studies is offered at AS and A2 and provides the opportunity for pupils to continue from their GCSE studies or start from scratch.
For those not choosing to study drama for public examination, this vibrant area of school life affords many opportunities for all pupils to perform, design and direct in the many productions that take place during the school year. Extra-curricular activities offered by the Drama Department include scenery design, dance classes, theatrical productions, sound, make-up, stage management and stage lighting.
