Drama has an important role to play in the personal development of our students. The skills and qualities developed by students in drama, such as teamwork, empathy, creativity, and leadership are assets in all subjects and all areas of life.

Drama stimulates the imagination and allows students to explore issues and experiences in a safe and supportive environment. It also promotes self-esteem and provides all students with a sense of achievement regardless of academic ability.  It’s about social skills, communication skills, and having fun – we learn by doing!

“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”

Oscar Wilde
