The Drama Team: Gemma Mayes, Johnathan Williams and Rachel Edwards
Gemma Mayes (Head of Department) BA Drama and Literature, Johnathan Williams (Assistant Head of Department) BA Drama and Literature, and Rachel Edwards (Theatre Manager) BA Drama, have worked together for ten years. During that time they have significantly raised the academic profile of the department, with drama consistently securing some of the highest academic results within the school.
As a team they have produced thirty-three extra-curricular productions, introducing favourites such as Shakespeare on the chapel lawn and the Sixth Form summer residency, with performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As a team they are passionate about inspiring the next generation of theatre makers and performers.
