My drama teacher gives me strength and courage to give my best. She encouraged me to use my loud, strong voice and helped me express emotion of character in voice and actions.

Central to education is the ability to challenge students in a way that stimulates and inspires them to reach further than they thought possible, this is what our Shakespeare drama classes set to achieve.
Students delve into Shakespeare and explore the scenes of some of his most famous plays. They work deeply and actively, using well-honed drama techniques to uncover language and meaning.
Vocal production and connection to the poetry and language of Shakespeare, as well as honing the art of performing monologues further enhances their skills and knowledge within Drama. Also available for those younger students (12yrs and older) deemed advanced in their skills and ready for further challenges.
Shakespeare in the classroom can often result in boredom, a lack of understanding of the language and a limited experience in the joy of Shakespeare.
Studies have shown that there are many strong indications to show that working with Shakespeare in a performance and experiential capacity has a wider impact on written work and examination results.
The depth of the language, the rhythm of the poetry and complexities of his characters are more keenly understood when on their feet!
A wonderful opportunity to experience and understand Shakespeare!
Each student must audition and/or trial for our classes before joining.
In drama auditions they will need to show an open and energised ability to collaborate in the activities and scenes.
