Drama

Deciphering life's narrative through exploration and performance

Drama has for 10 years been one of our Specialist Schools subjects.

The Drama department at Deptford Green is staffed by dynamic and engaging Drama specialist teachers. The Drama department provides exciting opportunities for pupils to develop strong collaborative, explorative and performance skills. Deptford Green boasts two state of the art Drama studios with excellent lighting and sound facilities, a large in house Theatre with cutting edge technical facilities and two outdoor performance spaces.

Deptford Green has a thriving extracurricular enrichment programme, where students have the opportunity to take part in two exciting productions per year. Deptford Green Drama Students regularly visit the theatre to view a wide range of productions and have professional theatre companies brought in to perform for them. We aim to inspire in our students the love of dramatic literature, theatre and live performance, and foster in them strong professional skills and practises that they can take with them when they leave us.

All KS3 pupils have one Drama lesson per week, Students who take Drama as an option at GCSE will have three. (Please see our GCSE description section).
