Dragon Drama aims to introduce and inspire pupils to the joys of theatre, whilst also fostering holistic skills that will benefit pupils’ social and emotional development.

Igniting a passion for performance

Wherever you’re heading and whatever you aspire to, the performing arts can help you on your journey. Drama cultivates the curiosity and confidence required in any industry or office and, at the Dragon, the Arts are our superpower.

There are so many opportunities to get involved in Drama, from mini pantomimes devised and delivered in small groups to huge combined year group productions like School of Rock, Guys and Dolls or Blood Brothers. Here performing arts are for everyone, whether you’re more comfortable in the spotlight or on the sound desk.

All pupils in Years 46 have fortnightly Drama lessons, as well as the majority of pupils in Years 7 and 8. Many pupils also choose to study Speech and Drama, and LAMDA awards in various disciplines are available.
