The Drama Department is managed overall by the Head of Department, Miss Jessop, and lead by the Head of Subject Miss Black.

The Department is staffed by two well-qualified specialist Drama and Theatre teachers; co-ordinating Key Stages 3, 4, Sixth Form and Extra Curricular activities.

There are two specialist Drama Studios; one with lighting rig, the other with a set of moveable rostrum and an office / store room. Each studio has a computer linked projector and a variety of support IT equipment.

Drama deals with fundamental questions of language, interpretation and meaning.

Drama is one of the key ways in which children can gain an understanding of themselves as; decision-makers and problem solvers; can learn to function collaboratively and can explore - within a supportive frame work - not only a range of human feelings, but also a whole spectrum of social situations and/or moral dilemmas.
