DRAMA & PERFORMING ARTS
Combining with our high standard and passion for music within the school and among our SHS children, Drama and the Performing Arts is an area of excellence, as seen in our school concerts, Drama lessons and impressive LAMDA results.
All pupils from Nursery upwards are exposed to a wide variety of performing arts, cultural and dramatic opportunities within school life.
Within the Pre-Prep, Drama is embedded within all subjects and specific lessons are planned each week with Class Teachers.
For children in Year 3 – Year 6, there is a weekly hour Drama lesson with the Drama specialist.
Drama is not only an engaging, fun and active lesson but it is critical to the development of
self-confidence and effective team-working skills as well as providing children an important medium for self-expression.
In addition to weekly Drama lessons, children can take part in extra-curricular Drama club and children may also be invited to attend the specialist LAMDA club where they will have the opportunity to prepare to take a LAMDA exam.
