At St Dunstan's College, we are proud to offer an ambitious, diverse and inclusive programme of opportunities that challenge our students to explore their role within society. Whether it be in the studio or on stage, Drama has so much more to offer than just the opportunity to perform.
It is such an exciting time for Drama at St Dunstan's College, a subject that this community truly values, prioritises and believes in. The Drama Department has recently moved into our new state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre (PAC).
This new facility includes three fully equipped black box rehearsal spaces, two new LAMDA teaching rooms and a theatre. Whether you are a dancer, a designer, a technician, or a director, these facilities will ensure that every student is able to explore the limitless possibilities contained within the world of theatre.
For the subject to remain accessible to all, we offer a wide variety of pathways. If you are seeking to understand performance from an academic perspective, we offer Drama and Theatre Studies at both GCSE and A Level, achieving outstanding results each year. The June 2020 cohort achieved 100% A*/A at A Level and 87% 7-9 at GCSE. Outside of the curriculum, there are so many opportunities to engage with the subject as part of our Forder Programme, which is ambitious in both breadth and scope. We offer a diverse array of College productions, which have included musical theatre and naturalism as well as dance and physical theatre; a variety of clubs across a broad range of disciplines such as tech, dance and script writing; workshops with industry professionals and a comprehensive programme of trips and visits which draw on the resources that we are fortunate to have around us to find inspiration. If that still isn't enough drama to fill a week, we also have a full time LAMDA teacher on site, with all the qualifications and styles accounted for. The only real challenge our young thespians ever face is finding the time to fit it all in.
