Drama plays a very important role in academy life. We strive to provide a varied and interesting curriculum in the classroom, a wide range of extracurricular activities and regular high quality performances throughout the year.
Students from the academy are currently taking part in the Shakespeare Schools Festival. This is an annual event, where schools from around the UK perform a range of Shakespeare plays in a professional theatre space in front of a large audience.
Students of all ages are invited to take part in school performances. This has included a whole school summer show and Key Stage 4 BTEC assessed performances. The school summer musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat wowed audiences with its skilled acting, singing and dance performances.
With the use of the internal outstanding facilities including a fully equipped, state of the art theatre and teaching space, we aim to develop student’s drama skills as well as personal skills to enrich their time at the Academy and in their lives beyond.
The Drama Department aims to encourage confidence, creativity and technical skills in all students through the delivery of a personalised and diverse curriculum.

Drama is always a popular choice at Key Stage 4. Students are given the opportunity to study Edexcel BTEC First Certificate or Diploma in Performing arts (Acting).

These courses place an emphasis on vocational relevance in order to prepare students with the practical skills needed to undertake employment in the performing arts industry.
