Musicals and Theatre
The Drama department offer many opportunities to thrive within the area of Performing Arts. Every year we work closely with the Art and Music department to put on a whole school production. This allows all year groups to participate, either as a performer or as part of the backstage design crew. Last year a production of Alice in Wonderland involved over 100 students from different year group. 2023 sees our own production of ‘High School Musical’.
In addition to the whole school production students are encouraged to attend weekly drama clubs at both Key stage 3 and 4 where we work on a play to perform in the summer term. Last year the Key stage 4 and 5 students performed ‘Girls Like That’ by Evan Placey
This performance was linked to our PSHE curriculum as it deals with issues surrounding social media and peer pressure among teenagers. All students in year 9 got to watch the performance, including students across the Robert Carre Trust.
In addition to extracurricular activities, students who study Drama at both GCSE and A level have the opportunity to watch professional theatre in the West End and participate in workshops at the famous Pineapple Studios.
