Drama and Production
At Central Foundation, students enjoy a wide range of experiences and opportunities outside of timetabled drama lessons. It is a priority for the department to encourage students to pursue their interest in drama outside of the regular curriculum, helping to further develop creative curiosity, confidence, passion and experience of the wide range of opportunities that are available in the performing arts. Students are able to take advantage of our wonderful location and attend local and West End theatre productions to further develop their interest and experience professional performances first hand through our range of school trips.
Historically we have participated in the Shakespeare in Schools Festival, Matthew Bourne’s Curtain Raiser and numerous workshops with renowned practitioners and theatre companies including Frantic Assembly and the Donmar Warehouse. The drama department also has affiliations with The Old Vic, The Almeida theatre and Company Three, enabling our students to take part in a wide range of professionally-led workshops, regular theatre visits and be a part of local theatre performances for free across the year.
