Performing Arts are now woven into the fabric of our society as an important form of entertainment that encourages people to come together and enjoy, discuss or participate in the Arts. Getting involved yourself, or encouraging your children to take dance classes or drama lessons will open doors socially and will allow you or your children to make new friends more easily, after all a key to drama and music is communication. It will also help you to get out into your local community, meet a varied group of people from different backgrounds, and keep you busy in your spare time.

In Year 10, pupils have one class per cycle, where they follow the NI Curriculum for Drama, which focuses on skills such as hot seating, tableau, conscience alley, thought tracking and freeze frame. We focus also on mime, voice, facial expression, movement and gesture.

Year 12 is following the AQA GCSE Performing Arts specification, which offers students the chance to explore a range of performance disciplines. It promotes student choice, allows for different creative approaches and develops independent learning skills.
There is a weekly Drama Club open to anyone with an interest in developing Drama Skills.
