Drama Productions


The school presents a 'whole school' musical or play each year which is performed in the spring term.

All students whether studying Drama and Theatre Studies or not are able to audition for a part.  Students may also participate by being part of the various support teams, ie set design, costume team, backstage crew, or the tech team which includes lighting, sound and video.

The latest production, Matilda Jr, received many wonderful plaudits, including:

  • "An awesome show as always, everyone involved is an absolute credit to the school. From the performers, the teaching staff and the tech team. You should all be very very proud of what you have achieved, well done to you all, I really hope a standing ovation awaits you tonight"
  • "It was an absolute privilege to see the play! So much talent! well done to all involved!"

  • "huge congrats to all of the students. We were extremely impressed by the show - in particular Matilda and Miss Trunchbull. I would also like to point out the fantastic dancing by the boy in the red top during the contemporary number - as I danced for many years I was very impressed by his super clean triple pirouettes."
