...through the Arts they [students] gain access to the real world and to other possible imaginative worlds, and make coherent meaning and order for themselves…

At High School level, students create performance, analyse interpret and act out scripts, and engage in the study of theatre design. Our Drama Department nurtures the growing confidence of students and encourages the development of social and communication skills that will enrich every aspect of their personal and professional lives. Our students have used their Drama experience at Reddam House to carve out acting careers appearing in professional films, theatre productions and TV commercials. Students engage in advanced studies of Drama in Year 10 and 11 learning in a practical and theoretical way about the philosophies and techniques of influential theatre practitioners building skills in devising theatre, acting and the critical evaluation of performance.

They may then select the subject for HSC study. Reddam House consistently achieves outstanding HSC Drama results with students being awarded marks in the top bands. Each year our students are nominated for OnSTAGE, the annual presentation of New South Wales schools’ exemplary work.
