Reddam House realizes and values the life-long benefit gained from exposure to our Drama programme. The aim of the Drama Course at Reddam House is to learn to work together, to communicate roles and imaginative ideas to others through voice and movement.

Stories often form the basis of the ‘play’ and the teacher becomes ‘teacher in role’ which is an integral part of the process of developing improvisation.

During lessons the drama space is turned into an imaginary world where all can play as large or small a role as they choose, while active participation is nurtured. Students are encouraged to share their drama work with a variety of different audiences including their peers, parents and teachers.

One of the highlights of the drama course is preparing for Reddam House’s annual professional performance. The production is not compulsory, however the experience provides the opportunity for participating students to express themselves through creative activity and/or for students to engage with the artistic, cultural and intellectual work of others as a participant or audience.
