Drama Clubs

We have two Drama Clubs in School - one for the lower school (Years 7,8 and 9) and one for the upper school (Years 10 and 11).

The Junior Club meets once a week in a lunchtime session.  Each year, members of the group write and perform a play with a particular theme.  A production of the play is performed to students at St. Winifred's School.  

Apart from the production itself, there are a number of other activities during the year including improvisation, performance skills and working from scripted material.

The Senior Club meets once a week after school.  For the first part of the Autumn term, participants read through the play (or plays) chosen for the annual school production.  They then choose a part to practise in preparation for auditions.  The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Bracknell speaks

Once parts have been allocated, rehearsals begin, continuing until the summer production.

The annual Musical, held at the end of the Spring term, is a highlight of the school year for many.  During the week in which this occurs, students from every year group unite to display their talents as actors, singers, dancers and instrumentalists, as well as in the design and technical aspects of the productions and in choreography.

In April 2017, students presented "We Will Rock You" in our Atrium in the Hart building.

Other productions in the past include "Crazy for You", "Guys and Dolls", "My Fair Lady", "Me and My Girl", "The Sound of Music", "Half a Sixpence", "Annie Get Your Gun", "Carousel", "The King and I", "Oklahoma!", and "Beauty and The Beast".

Students studying GCSE Drama are regularly assessed on their performances for technical and design contributions, a number having been awarded high marks reflecting both talent and diligence.
