All the world's a stage – and here you'll find every opportunity to be at the centre of it. With two major productions each year, one staff directed and one student-led, there’s an opening for everyone who wants to take part.
We run a very full and varied programme of Drama & Theatre enrichment. Whether you want to take part on stage or work behind the scenes to produce, direct, design or make, we have something for you.
Every year, there are four main performance opportunities:
- 6th Form Cabaret – Every October our 6th Form is transformed into a glittering candle-lit cabaret bar to showcase the talents of our students whilst raising money from charity.
- Main School Play – In this staff-directed production in November, 6th Formers work alongside members of KS4 and we alternate between straight plays and musicals. There are also opportunities to work as assistant director or to join the backstage team.
- 6th Form Play – Directed and performed by 6th Form students, this February production is usually a comedy and always a huge crowd pleaser.
- 6th Form Summer Performance – An opportunity to experiment with different genres and performance styles; it also showcases new writing, and incorporates live music and dance. Our two most recent summer performances have been performed in promenade, using different spaces across our site.
"It's not all about the stars – there are loads of opportunities to get involved in directing and stage-managing too."“
