Excellence with a sense of fun!

Extra-Curricular | Dance & Drama

Speech and Drama

Chargeable

Available from Year 3, these classes aim to foster an appreciation of literature, poetry and drama, improving communication through the spoken word. There are opportunities for the girls to improve their technical voice skills such as articulation and variety of pitch, as well as playing improvisation games to encourage tenacity, team work and creative thinking. The emphasis is on having fun whilst learning to work both within a group and individually. Team work and communication are hugely important in life and the girls learn to develop both of these in a safe and non-competitive environment. Self-belief and self-esteem are encouraged and each child learns how to value both themselves and others.

All girls taking Speech and Drama are invited to prepare for LAMDA examinations. These exams offer each pupil the opportunity to pursue their preferred genre of performance, from acting to poetry speaking; sight-reading to story-telling. They also provide girls with the chance to show off their improvisation skills and discuss their chosen performance material.
