Drama deals with fundamental questions of language, interpretation and meaning

The Drama Department is managed overall by the Head of Subject, Mr I Rafiq.

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 movable rostrum and an office / store room. Each studio has a computer linked projector and a variety of support IT equipment.

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.
