The Drama Department is committed to providing students with many extra-curricular opportunities to take part in all aspects of Drama and Performance including the chance for students to help behind the scenes with make-up, costume, set and lighting. Annually, we have a large scale all-inclusive school production (including 160+students) which gives students in all years the chance to work together and create a polished performance to an exceptionally high standard. All students in the school are welcomed and do not need to take GCSE or A-Level Drama to be able to take part. For the past eight years students from Years 8-13 have taken part in the Watford Drama Festival, achieving numerous awards.
We also organise visits by professional actors and Theatre companies who run workshops with our GCSE and A-level students. Theatre trips and experiences are organised for all GCSE and A-Level students, with A level theatre trips running regularly throughout the year to an eclectic and diverse range of performances. The Drama Department operates an open door policy allowing students at all stages of their learning to seek advice and support from their teacher regarding coursework, performance or examination skills. Students will often spend lunch times in the Drama Studio rehearsing their examined performances. Revision sessions are run in the Easter Holidays in preparation for GCSE and A-Level examinations.
