All our boys enjoy drama as a subject in its own right and as a learning medium across subjects. Pupils unselfconsciously mix theatre, dance, music, visual arts, and aspects of media in assemblies, concerts, and productions, working together under the guidance of a specialist teacher and via works as diverse as Greek tragedy, puppet theatre, and radio satire.
We have our own performance space, lighting and sound desks, breakout space, and costumes and props store. Exposure to theatre, opera, and visiting performers broadens the boys’ understanding of culture and place.
Participation ranges from central stage to production. Drama, as an outlet for self-expression, a medium for collaboration, and a giver of confidence in oneself and one’s peers, is a great vehicle for inclusivity.
