Department Introduction

WELCOME TO THE PERFORMING ARTS DEPARTMENT

Drama helps students to develop confidence, self-esteem and communication skills. We teach students how to use dramatic techniques, including working in role to explore ideas and texts. Our lessons also provide a safe environment in which children can express themselves through team work and improvisation.

Overall we aim to provide a vehicle for individual expression.

If you would like to find out more information about our subject, please contact the head of department, Miss R Dunn.
