Drama and Theatre is a dynamic, collaborative and live art form. It is a practical subject that encourages discovery through experimentation, the taking of risks and the presentation of ideas to others.

It results in the development of both performance and life skills; the building of confidence, creativity and working collaboratively.  In drama and theatre students learn to work both independently and collaboratively to construct meanings, produce works, and respond to and value others’ contributions. They learn to use imagination to engage with unexpected outcomes and to explore multiple solutions. 


We aim to create inquiring students inspiring them through a variety of stimuli, designed to allow students to tell stories, tap into their emotions and explore relationships and the world around them. 

We aim to develop core acting skills in all students, equipping them with a developed drama vocabulary which can be built upon in the GCSE and IB courses. The lifelong communication skills of public speaking, confidence when addressing others and teamwork will enable students to excel outside of the subject.   


We seek to enable students to explore issues both locally and globally, through drama.

We encourage them to ask questions through their work and explore theatrical styles from around the world supporting their development as responsible global citizens.  We want students to understand how theatre is made and experience the different methods and processes of creating Theatre.

At the heart of drama and theatre is the experience of performing in front of others and being in an audience, students should therefore engage with and experience many different types of theatre performances thus building a theoretical understanding of what makes an effective piece of theatre and to be able to use the key vocabulary of the subject. Students have the opportunity throughout their Drama education to enjoy theatre trips, digital theatre and to be part of a production.
