Drama is a popular activity at College and we hold at least six productions a year, including two House plays. Pupils have the opportunity to perform onstage or be part of the backstage team developing skills in lighting, sound, stage management and more. This approach ensures that everyone has the opportunity to develop his or her talents and enjoy being part of a stage production.
Pupils who are part of a production are given protected time, with three sessions a week dedicated to rehearsal and performance. This approach gives pupils space to focus on the production but also ensures that academic studies are not neglected.
One of the biggest joys of College productions is that it allows pupils to perform in front of sold-out audiences of peers, parents and staff in our theatre, Big Classical, which is one of College’s original buildings.
