Drama plays an important part in life at St Catherine’s, both on the timetable and as a very popular extra-curricular activity. You just cannot escape it!

Middle School Drama lessons from U3 to U4, GCSE Drama and AS Theatre Studies as examination choices, LAMDA Speech and Drama as an extra curricular option, an annual House Drama competition that everyone is involved in and Middle and Senior School productions. There is something for absolutely everyone!


Theatre Visits

Drama GCSE and Theatre Studies A-Level students enjoy a number of theatre visits as part of their courses. Recent and imminent visits include, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time, Lord of the Flies, Warhorse, Sarah Kane’s Cleaned and are about to see Frantic Assembly’s Things I know to be True.

As an added bonus, we are also now lucky enough to have a professional theatre on site and therefore frequently play host to some of the most successful touring theatre companies, who are eager to utilise the fantastic facilities. This gives the students the rare opportunity to see top-rate performances without having to leave the comfort of their own school! Recently we were visited by ‘Les Enfants Terrible’ who staged their excellent production of Marvellous Imaginary Managerie, as well ‘Fourth Monkey’s’ Elephant Man
