We are fortunate in the Preparatory School to have access to LAMDA teachers who teach pupils extra-curricular Speech and Drama and Acting Lessons through into the Senior School. This means that there are a wide variety of opportunities for the pupils and it is sometimes possible to continue with the same tutor throughout a pupil’s whole school career.
Pupils discover a wide range of poetry and prose and learn how to interpret their meanings and experience a variety of skills including staging techniques, mime, role-play and improvisation.
