Newlands Drama Department aims to create enthusiastic and confident performers who have an understanding and appreciation of the possibilities of drama and theatre. It is a popular and exciting subject and our intention to connect classroom drama to the theatre’s long and diverse history as a cultural form.
Theatre and Drama flourish at Newlands and there are many opportunities for pupils to become involved in this vibrant area of school life. In addition to offering the subject at GCSE and A-Level, the Department provides the facilities and framework for interested pupils to become fully involved in a variety of activities.
The Department is also a host to a wide variety of visiting professional workshops and as such it plays a significant role in the cultural life of both the School and the wider community.
