The aim of performing arts at Gad’s Hill School is to develop self-confidence, self-esteem and freedom of expression, where all pupils are allowed to realise their dramatic potential.

Drama is an integral and enjoyable part of the curriculum and pupils have weekly Drama lessons with a specialist teacher. From Year 3 they take part in a range of activities where they learn different drama skills and techniques. Drama has strong cross-curricular links with English, History and Geography and where possible, the Drama that the children experience, relates to work that they are covering in class.

Visiting workshops come into school for most year groups and the children get the opportunity to work with experienced actors and perform in front of an audience.

All pupils take part with energy and enthusiasm in school productions and in the Spring term, they get to present the annual school production to proud parents and family.
