Drama is about many things...
...theatre, improvisation and presentation skills, instilling confidence, co-operation, communication, humour and empathy. Our wish is for every child to be able to stand up in front of others and to express themselves with confidence and conviction.
The theatre provides an imposing and technically demanding setting for a number of major productions each year.
For those that see the world as a stage, this is a great place to start.
Drama at Hazlegrove is taught as part of the curriculum right from the Pre-Prep. Our Head of Drama, Kimberley Arnold, studied Theatre Arts and Drama at the London Studio Centre before gaining major roles in Phantom of the opera, Les Miserables, Cats and Fame.

All pupils are involved in a major production in the Theatre every year, usually to packed audiences. By the time pupils reach the end of Year 8, being on the stage and performing has become second nature to the vast majority of the group.

Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.
