“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being” Oscar Wilde
Mrs F Bray – Head of Drama
Plays were written for actors to act and audiences to enjoy. Studying Shakespeare – or any playwright – without experiencing live performance is like learning to swim without getting wet.
Drama and Theatre courses give students the opportunity to explore all aspects of theatre, studying plays from a practical perspective; discovering the differing styles and techniques of contemporary practitioners; analysing and commenting on live interpretation; and devising and performing pieces of their own.
As well as developing a rich understanding of the subject, students acquire essential life skills such as self-awareness and confidence, teamwork and respect for others; communication and literacy.
