Drama Department

I really enjoy Drama because it unites everyone from different year groups and from your own year group. Not only is it exciting, fun and interesting, it is also something that boosts your confidence and opens another door of opportunity.

At St George’s, Drama and Theatre Arts is an important subject encouraging students not only to creatively examine the world in which they live, but also to understand what it means to look at life from different points of view.

In Key Stage 3, Drama is taught as a stand-alone subject from Year 7 to Year 9. Students practically explore a new project each half term, studying different theatre forms and genres from around the world.

At IGCSE level and in IB Theatre Arts, students deepen their understanding of theatre as a director, designer and performer, exploring the many diverse forms of this dynamic subject. They are encouraged to become outstanding team players and also motivated and inspired leaders, able to take the initiative and work with imagination and insight. There is a strong emphasis in both courses on individual research and on acquiring good technical and organisational skills which would be useful in any chosen career.

All students are encouraged to see as much theatre as possible and a trip to London is organised for Key Stage 4 and Sixth Form students, as well as local theatre visits in and around Rome.

The Department works with students to put on a variety of productions and also hosts visiting theatre companies and world theatre practitioners.
