The Drama department at Saint Michael’s school is dedicated to developing the teamwork, confidence and communication skills of every pupil in the school.
Each pupil has one lesson every week at key stage three. Then they have the opportunity to develop their skills further by choosing to study the subject to GCSE level in key stage four.
We teach pupils to devise their own plays through improvisation, and also to perform the scripted works of others. We additionally ensure that pupils learn many performance support skills such as lighting, set, sound, costume and make – up design.
The Drama Department at Saint Michael’s additionally offers lots of opportunities for pupils who enjoy drama and wish to extend their skills.
There is a Drama club running within the department every lunch time. These clubs are run by the student directors within our pupil appointed Drama Council. We play games, work on improvisation skills and perform short plays.
The Drama club’s skills are frequently called upon to support school worships through readings and dramatic performances. We also collaborate with other members of the performing arts team to produce highly acclaimed work for the Shakespeare for school festival, and for the biannual school musical.
We warmly welcome anyone who wishes to get involved and get creative, and if that is you we really look forward to seeing you soon.
One lesson a week in Years 7 and 8 and can opt in Year 8.
