Drama

There are strong links between curriculum drama and school performances, with children having an opportunity to take part in plays, musicals and informal performances throughout their time at school.

Lower School

Each year the new Form 1 children perform a Christmas nativity play, supported by Form 2 children performing novelty poems in their annual Christmas Celebration.

Middle School

Form 3 children work on a larger scale musical that combines singing, dancing and acting into an extravagant performance.

Form 4 children are offered the opportunity to take part in Drama Club, which leads to a public performance in the summer term.

Upper School

Form 5 children work on a substantial musical play, which enables those who show particular aptitude on the stage to extend their experience alongside their year group. Everyone is encouraged to take part.

Serious actors in Form 6 can audition for parts in a Shakespeare play, which is usually performed at Cranleigh Arts Centre.

Weekly lessons are available in LAMDA, which helps to develop acting and poetry speaking skills alongside self-awareness and self-confidence. Children are prepared and entered for external LAMDA exams each year.
