Drama education

Drama at THS will enable students to combine creative and analytical approaches in their learning. It will develop students’ capacity:

  • to work with rigour
  • to communicate effectively
  • to work collaboratively
  • to use approaches from a range of disciplines
  • to connect your studies to the world around you

Drama prepares students for a range of future pathways: The creative arts industry employs around 700,000 people UK wide and contributes 24.8 billion to the UK economy.
