Musicals and Theatre
The Drama department offer a number of opportunities for students to thrive within the area of Performing Arts. We participate in Shakespeare Schools Festival where students across all year groups get to perform an adapted 30-minute version of a classic Shakespeare play. The students work with professional actors on the day and perform their final production at Lincoln Drill hall.
Over the past few years we have been involved in Rock Challenge, this is a national dance competition where schools are encouraged to create an 8-minute dance/ theatre performance based on a theme of their choice. Over 100 students from all year groups were involved most recently and we won several awards. Students can take part in this event not just as a performer but as part of the set design team, stage crew, costume and makeup team or as part of the fundraising and promotions team.
The school also do annual school productions. Most recently we did a key stage 3 production of Daisy Pulls it Off ‘by Samuel French. And next year is our whole school Musical.
In addition to extracurricular activities, students that study Drama at both GCSE and A level have the opportunity to watch professional theatre in the west end and participate in workshops at the famous pineapple studios.
