Pupils at EYFS / Key Stage 1 enjoy curricular Speech and Drama lessons. As pupils move into Key Stage 2, most are keen to continue with their drama lessons therefore extra-curricular provision is offered to pupils from Year 3 upwards.

Speech and Drama lessons include tuition in acting skills, improvisation, verse and prose speaking, reading aloud, mime and public speaking. These skills help to improve standards of communication through the spoken word, promote confidence and encourage the development of individual talent.

Students work towards London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) examinations each year. The pupils showcase their work in a series of expressive arts evenings and in school productions.
