Confidence in public situations has always been one of the aims of the Drama Department in the Senior School. With this in mind the Year 7 and Year 8/9 Drama Clubs set about their twice yearly small scale productions to parents and invited guests.
Skills built here often enthuse girls into taking part in the yearly school production where they mix with all seven year groups and develop technical ability in performance and related fields. In recent past years performances have included ‘The Wind in the Willows’ at Solihull library theatre and two entries: 'The Shoemaker’s Incredible Wife’ and ‘Peach Child’ for the National Theatre’s Shell Connections young people's theatre competition, gaining places in the second round of the competition.
Regular GCSE and A Level performances add depth and diversity to a girl’s experience. The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) examinations are a regular feature of the Key Stage 3 calendar where examinations in choral speaking, acting and public speaking build cross-curricular skills used in debating and public speaking competitions.
