The audience were laughing and crying!

The Y11 Drama performed to family and staff earlier this month. They performed extracts from the play ‘Two’ Jim Cartwright and ‘Bouncers’ John Godber. They were all fantastic and it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Well done!

Y9 Drama – Violent computer games

Y9 students have been exploring the impact that violent computer games can have on children. They have taken an unbiased approach and tried to look at the games from different points of view. With this information, the students have been creating short drama pieces that inspire adults to really look at the content of these games before allowing their children to play on them.

Y8 Drama – Teenage issues

Learning how to create didactic theatre in their drama lessons, Y8 have been busy. They have been creating performances which have educated audiences on various topics such as the dangers of energy drinks, how to be safe on the internet and the effects of smoking. The lessons have been quite emotional and the students have created some fantastic mature and thought provoking work.
