Drama skills give young people a well developed foundation to help them feel more confident on stage and in life.
Fun theatre games develop concentration, team building, trust and confidence.

 - Key stage one students follows on from their EYFS by continuing to develop skills in communication and language, physical development, personal, social and emotional development.
- Students in key stage two + work on developing improvisation, devising and analysing text on a deeper level, exploring movement further and beginning to develop a link between the two.  Themes are thought provoking, linking their literacy with emotional and social development (bullying, relationships etc)
- Physical development will include activities which encourage good control, co-ordination and spatial awareness including improvised movement, mime and dance aimed at developing self expression and audience awareness.
