Drama classes have a proven track record of improving every facet of self development that can be utilised in all aspects of life.

Here in our school we have a unique approach to the subject of Drama and our growing numbers and many testimonials from former pupils prove that our approach works.

Our classes are aimed at improving the following skills:

Concentration – helping the mind focus.

Listening skills – taking instructions, hearing others and learning to trust your inner voice.

Co – operation – learning to work with, communicate and understand people.

 

Everything we do in class will help develop these skills.
