Pupils from Nursery to Year 8 are taught Drama by a specialist teacher. In their sessions pupils complete work in units covering fundamental life skills, technical aspects of Drama, and explore various genres. Students from Years 4-8 have the opportunity to be part of large musical productions. While classes develop students’ presentation and communication skills, the production club allows students to develop acting and theatrical abilities. Pre Prep have the opportunity to perform at the end of the Michaelmas Term and Trinity Term to an audience to start to build confidence and communication skills.
Hilden Grange has successfully entered a number of students for Drama Scholarships to independent secondary schools at both age 11 and 13.
