Drama

A key target for the school is ensuring that children leave the Prep as confident speakers.

Drama plays a crucial role in this and from the moment pupils enter Kindergarten they are given plenty of opportunities to develop their acting and public speaking skills. All children are involved in school productions which are held throughout the year in our Theatre and Chapel.

In Years 5 and 6, there is a dedicated drama lesson in which pupils are introduced to a wide range of skills from improvisation to mime. They thoroughly enjoy not just acting on stage but writing; producing and stage directing plays they have written themselves as well as performing extracts from the works of Shakespeare and other great writers. We can offer peripatetic training for those who wish to take LAMDA exams and many of our pupils go on to perform key roles in professional productions at the Theatre Royal. Our debating club and public speaking competitions in Years 5 and 6 ensure that all our pupils are gaining invaluable experience and confidence that will help them enormously, not just at Senior School but in further education and in the world of employment.

Whether they are already at their happiest when under the spotlight, or still rather shy about public speaking, by the time they reach Year 6 they are able to speak to a large audience and thoroughly enjoy being centre stage.
