Throughout the year the drama department is involved with various different events that students can be part of. Our main event, the whole school production, takes place during spring (b). Auditions are held in September and are ususally open to Years 8-11 dependent on the production chosen. Rehearsals take place 2 to 3 nights a week from September through to the production week.

In the summer term we run a lower school drama club, often supported by GCSE students, which will then result in either a lower school play or a series of devised drama pieces for the summer showcase. In July 2012 we put on two short pieces, 'Granny and the Wolf' and 'The Perils of Pauline'.
For our GCSE students we provide opportunites for performance at the upper school showcase in November and the Christmas Concert in December .
We have also been involved with the Shakespeare Schools Festival for the last five years. In November 2011 GCSE students performed 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' at the Broxbourne Civic Hall in Hoddesdon.
