Drama and musical theatre

Many ways to be involved

All pupils take part in drama as part of their curriculum in Riley, Junior House and in Third Form. There are opportunities for all to continue with the programme as an optional activity throughout their time at school both on stage and behind the scenes.

Wide repertoire

We set high-standards in our productions and recent repertoire includes Les Miserables, Timelord, Phantom of the Opera, Twelfth Night, The Wizard of Oz, Daisy Pulls it Off and Ghost Train.  As well as performing in our 240-seat theatre, pupils can get involved in set design, lighting, sound, make-up and costume.

LAMDA and ALCM Diplomas

In recent years our musical theatre programme has supported pupils to achieve distinctions at Grades 7 and 8 as well as the professional ALCM Diploma. We also have large numbers participating in the world-renowned London Academy of Music and Drama Awards (LAMDA) which provides qualifications in communication and performance and inspires the next generation of confident communicators through examinations in drama, literature and poetry.
