‘There is an enduring love and respect for performance at St Faith’s and as Head of Drama I am proud to showcase the wonderful talents of our pupils’.
Drama is taught by a subject specialist weekly from Year 3 to Year 8 and as a department we pride ourselves on group collaboration, unlocking young creative minds and encouraging curious thinkers.
We have two full scale productions per year, alongside multiple informal performances, and prep school showcases. Regular performance opportunities allow pupils to grow in personal confidence and bring joy to the school community. We have an inclusive policy for all productions and look to provide enriching opportunities, where ALL pupils can strive and thrive. Previous productions have included Aladdin Jr, Matilda Jr and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The Drama department benefits from a rehearsal studio, a performance space with high- spec lighting equipment and an in- house costume and prop cupboard. The Drama team work collaboratively with the music department to facilitate high quality musical theatre showcases.
We prepare our most committed and talented performers for drama scholarships at senior schools through our tailored and aspirational scholarship programme.
Speech and Drama is a popular activity within the school. During these lessons, the curriculum is enriched through one to one and small group teaching, leading to a termly examination, where over 90% of pupils regularly achieve distinction.
Drama is thriving at St Faith’s, and I believe that it gives pupils an abiding love for the Arts and skills that are invaluable in all aspects of life.
