Drama and Theatre

I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being

“For me, A-level drama is what made me fall in love with the subject. I have gained a huge boost in confidence when it comes to performing and in my own abilities thanks to the subject. Additionally, through studying drama I have developed stronger bonds with my peers and I really felt as if there was a strong sense of community within my classes. This sense of companionship was only enforced when working in my devised group. Moreover, the theory side of the course, is something which fascinated me. It allowed me to gain a further understanding of what actually went into producing a piece of theatre, from costume design to directing.”
Carys, Former A Level Drama Student
