Drama is part of the core curriculum up to Year 9 and may be studied at GCSE; in addition, Theatre Studies is a popular subject choice at A Level. Girls in the Senior School have the option to visit numerous professional productions on the London stage.
Drama also flourishes in extra-curricular lessons and clubs. There are two main productions a year enabling all age groups to perform. Joint productions are staged from time to time with boys from the Royal Grammar School. Recent productions have included A Midsummer Nights’ Dream, Dracula, Alice in Wonderland and Picnic at Hanging Rock.
Group speech and drama lessons are available and many girls take the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) examinations. Each year several girls attain the coveted gold medal in acting or the speaking of verse and prose.
