As well as representing an important part of our English curriculum, drama makes a significant contribution to the Co-Curricular programme at Junior School. Alongside traditional nativities and Christmas productions, Junior School pupils take part in two large-scale dramatic productions in year 4 and year 6. These are staged at the Senior School to make the most of the specialist facilities at the Westwood Theatre and Longton Hall. Junior School pupils not only feature on stage but also take charge of all aspects of lightning, sound, visual effects and stage management.
Alongside these large-scale events, pupils regularly have the opportunity to attend one of our after-school drama clubs, participate in assemblies to parents, and audition for our termly Speech & Drama Showcase. Pupils from Reception to year 6 also regularly take up the opportunity to study for the London Academy of Music and Drama (LAMDA) accredited examinations and we are proud to be regular contributors to the Beckenham Festival each November.
