The Drama Department at Kingsmead is a thriving and stimulating place. We aim to provide students with a range of opportunities to explore plays, issues and genres in a supportive and exciting environment.
Drama is a unique learning medium and we offer all students a positive environment of trust and respect where every student has an equal opportunity to participate and succeed.
Through the study of Drama we not only develop specific drama skills but also confidence, commitment, speaking, listening and communication skills whilst nurturing and encouraging creativity. This approach extends into the extra curricula opportunities on offer such as 'Spotlight Drama Club', theatre trips and workshops with professional artists. Most recently a small group of students took part in national drama competition and came out triumphant winning the award for ‘Best Production’.
We are very fortunate to have three purpose built studios equipped with lighting capability and Interactive Whiteboards. We also make full use of Kingsmead's amazing theatre for lessons and performances.
