Drama

The Drama Department offers many co-curricular opportunities from the weekly Junior Drama Club for 60 first and second years, led by a team of up to 12 enthusiastic sixth formers, to a range of Theatre trips and to many and varied productions for pupils to be involved in as actors, backstage crew, sound and lighting operatives, front of house stewards and publicists. Any Sixth Form student may present a proposal to direct a play and, if the suggestion is of sufficient merit, the department will support and facilitate the show. Below the Sixth form any group of pupils may book a Tuesday at One slot which would enable them to put on a half hour performance to their peers. The Department also offers training in stage make up to interested Upper School and Sixth Form pupils and we regularly employ Theatre Practitioners to give workshops or performances to our pupils ranging from Brecht to magical illusion!
