Drama and Theatre Studies

Drama is taught as a discrete subject in years 7 and 8 where the pupils are exposed to a range of styles and devices such as slapstick, clowning and mask. There are several clubs for pupils in this age range to attend which culminate in a public performance. In year 9, drama is one of the options available and is taught as a triple lesson throughout the year allowing the pupils to extend their appreciation of the subject.

Drama is offered at GCSE level and in the sixth form. These courses include the exploration of play texts, the performing of plays and the analysis of live theatre. Every year there are a number of extracurricular productions with Loughborough Grammar School as well as in-school opportunities.
