Drama is a growing discipline at St Martin's Ampleforth within the curriculum as an activity.
Years7 and 8 have timetabled lessons weekly in Drama to learn dramatic technique, improve confidence on stage and to develop performing skills.
Students may also choose to do Drama on one of their activity afternoons. This programme allows them to explore a variety of drama scripts and exercises as well as to prepare for performances to parents. Pupils are encouraged to develop confidence in speaking and performance skills and the activity provides opportunities for personal and artistic development through speech and drama. Pupils have the opportunity to take LAMDA exams and we have an outstanding record of success in these exams. Some pupils may be prepared for the drama element of the Basil Hume scholarship programme to Ampleforth College.
