“Like theatre, drama in schools can unlock the use of imagination, intellect, empathy and courage. Through it, ideas, responses and feelings can be expressed and communicated. It carries the potential to challenge, to question and to bring about change”. Jude Kelly (Theatre Director and founder of Metal)

Drama is popular and vibrant at Haygrove School with pupils from Year 7 to Year 11 studying the subject as both a practical and an academic discipline. Lessons are designed to promote imagination and creativity within a structured framework. 

Drama is a life skill and a creative art form. It helps pupils develop their ability to use voice, movement, gesture and facial expression, in acting, mime, dance drama and improvisation. They can express and manage their thoughts and feelings – shared and experienced – while working in a safe and controlled environment. The development of these skills encourages self confidence and self awareness. It promotes the development of the individual in a group context: roles and ideas are negotiated, problems solved and decisions made together. 

The Drama curriculum at Key Stage 3 enables pupils to explore, develop and express ideas and concepts which will help them make sense of reality. Every pupil has the equivalent of one hour per week for Drama in Years 7 and 8. In Year 9, Music, Drama and Art operate a carousel where there are two lessons per week over a shorter period of time.
