As part of the School’s curriculum, students are given a broad understanding of Drama through study of recognised texts, practical performance and devising their own scripts, with thorough analysis at every stage.
Woodbridge School’s Drama department is associated with LAMDA, the oldest drama school in the United Kingdom, founded in 1861. It is also the largest statuary speech and drama award body in the country. From Year 7, students are able to sign up for weekly LAMDA lessons, on their own or with a friend. This personal tutelage, delivered by our exceptional LAMDA staff, is a great way to develop performance skills whilst gaining confidence.
While extra-curricular activities also include Drama clubs for the Prep, Senior School and Sixth Form, students are also able to explore the practical and technical aspects of staging a professional production, from theatre lighting and sound to set builds, stage management and promotion.
