We make the most of our modern theatre with its large stage, 300-seater auditorium and state of the art sound and lighting systems. This is home to weekly drama lessons giving pupils a platform to build confidence and step out of their comfort zone to take on roles that will extend and challenge them on stage. It encourages creativity and collaboration on stage and behind the scenes.

Past productions have included the dramatisation of the life and times of St Thomas Beckett and Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Joseph and his Technicolour Dream Coat, ‘Oliver’, ‘Whistle Down the Wind’, ‘Oh, What A Lovely War’ and ‘Godspell’.

Our Year 8 pupils have an excellent track record of gaining Drama Scholarships to a range of senior schools such as Abingdon, Headington, Pangbourne College and The Oratory School.

Outside of the curriculum, LAMDA is incredibly popular with one to one lessons on offer and the opportunities to perform to parents as well as the school. LAMDA has a long and highly reputed history at the school and so many of our young pupils are inspired by pupils in Year 8 securing Distinctions and Drama Scholarships and Exhibitions to a range of senior schools.
