Drama

“Acting is a very personal process. It has to do with expressing your own personality, and discovering the character you’re playing through your own experience, therefore we’re all different.”
- Ian McKellen.
 
Drama is the kind of subject that really brings people together. It is a unique subject that allows students to express themselves, create, problem-solve, gain confidence, evolve in social situations and develop lifelong memories that will shape them into young people more prepared for the challenges life may throw at them.
 
Drama students have the opportunities of experiencing performance from professional theatre companies, these experiences are valuable learning encounters which encourage students to make connections with the wider theatre industry. Students also participate in Drama Night where they get the opportunity to showcase their ability to direct, perform and create whilst working with make-up, costume and stage and lighting design.
 
The ability of Drama to embrace any social activities and situations into the classroom empowers pupils with the skills needed to communicate more effectively in whatever profession they pursue.
