Drama is a lively and popular subject area which extends beyond the curriculum. Many performances take place during the year from large-scale school plays to lunchtime performances and productions taken out to the local community.
Drama is a vehicle for development in a variety of areas. Whilst the student is encouraged to develop an interest in, and skills directly related to Drama and the theatre, the student is also learning ‘life skills’, such as confidence, communication and co-operation, and gaining a greater understanding of the world in which we live.
