‘Theatre is a form of knowledge; it should and can also be a means of transforming society. Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.’  -  Augusto Boal

 


Drama and Theatre educates, brings people together and has many benefits to your child’s education and wellbeing. Drama builds communication, listening and cooperation skills. It helps us to understand how to work with other people. It helps us understand the importance of working together.

 


Our Drama Curriculum aims to inspire in all students an appreciation of many different genres and styles of text and performance. Through collaborative and creative learning experiences, students will develop their self-confidence, self-expression, empathy and communication skills. Students will cultivate skills in performance and analysis whilst developing fundamental skills to equip them for life and the world of work. 

 


Through the design and structure of our curriculum, we aim to develop students’ awareness of social, moral and ethical values, allowing them to respond creatively and critically to a range of plays, contexts and stimuli. We aim to deepen students’ cultural understanding and exposure. Students will gain a wider understanding and respect for the world in which they live and a wider awareness and appreciation for themselves and fellow humanity.

 


Through a passion for Theatre and learning, we aim to create a safe, secure and stimulating environment to inspire our students to become reflective, compassionate and creative individuals giving them the confidence to explore, challenge and question the world around them.
