Drama - J2

Friday  12.45 – 1.25 Terms 1 & 2 –  Old Form VI Centre


Further details from Mrs Harewood (Junior School).


The drama club provides an opportunity to boost all individual’s confidence, communication and concentration. During the initial stages of the club the activities are also designed to develop pupil’s cooperation and the ability to work as a team. The overall aim of the club is to stage a few ‘small’ performances for fellow pupils.


Drama - Form I

Form I. There will be a Junior Drama Club on  Tuesdays at  3.30pm, in the  Studio Theatre. More information  is available from Mr Russell.


There will also be a Form I production in the summer term. Auditions will take place in April. More information is available from Mrs Moore.


Drama - Forms II–III  “Intermediate”

Pupils in Forms II – III are encouraged to develop their interest in Drama by taking part in the Intermediate production at the beginning of December. 


Auditions take place in September, and there are also many opportunities for those interested in backstage work, costumes, design and technical support.


The Junior/Intermediate  Drama Club for Forms I and II also runs on Tuesdays 3.30 – 4.30.  


Drama - School Play – Form IV - VI

FIV-VI, on various days in the week as required; in Studio Theatre.


Further details from Mr Russell or members of the English department.


This is a fantastic way of meeting pupils in different year groups: an enjoyable and rewarding activity which allows pupils to establish new friendships, increase self-confidence and develop drama skills.  Opportunities exist both on and off stage – involvement in the sound and lighting crews allows pupils to develop technical skills if they do not wish to be in the limelight. Pupils will gain confidence in performance, enjoyment, and can also receive Duke of Edinburgh credit.


Drama - School Play – Front of House

FIV – VI; Term 2 in March.


Further details from Mrs Jeffrey and Mrs Stewart (Mathematics)


This is an opportunity for pupils to enjoy working behind the scenes of the School Play (see above), producing and selling tickets, designing publicity material and programmes, and helping out at performances in the evenings.


Drama – Form VI Play

FVI, rehearsals at various times to be organised by the pupils; in Studio Theatre. Term 1


Further details from Mr Russell or members of the English department.


This is produced, directed and acted by members of the Sixth Form.  Team work and creativity are key words here.  Acted in the Maguire Studio Theatre, it invariably draws sell-out crowds to see the dramatic talents of our senior pupils.  Supervised by a member of staff, who adds advice and sympathy, productions vary from 2006’s modern take of the classic Lysistrata to last year’s production of Fielding’s Tom Jones. Pupils will gain confidence in performance, enjoyment, and can also receive Duke of Edinburgh credit.
