We are a small and enthusiastic Drama Department, with a focus on helping pupils to develop their Drama and life skills in a supportive and fun environment. We are keen to challenge pupils and work cohesively to develop their skills so that they become confident individuals, effective contributors, successful learners and responsible citizens. We actively encourage pupils to take responsibility for their own learning in class; as part of this they are encouraged to work with a growth mindset, making use of their resilience. This allows them to challenge themselves to take new responsibilities and roles to develop their skills for life further.
We have a well resourced department with 2 Drama studios that benefit from stage lighting and sound equipment. We also have access to a healthy supply of materials for set, costume, props and hair and make-up. We work with all year groups from S1 to S6 running National and Higher Drama courses.
The Drama Department works on an 'open-door' policy. We welcome any pupil(s) who wants to use the Studios for rehearsals or to attend our Drama Club that will be starting again this year.
