In Drama, students can explore both themselves and the world around them without the barriers of pen and paper, screen and keyboard.
We aim to provide a course that gives students the dramatic techniques they can use to explore characters and ideas, and that gives them the confidence they need to communicate clearly with an audience. We provide opportunities for them to perform in a variety of situations and to experience the performances of a variety of other practitioners.
Extra-curricular activities include drama clubs, performances ranging through lunch time shows, small scale studio productions to full scale school musicals, and trips to professional performances and workshops. Students from Nunnery have performed on the stage at the Palace Theatre Redditch in the annual Shakespeare Schools Festival, at Worcester Cathedral as part of the Voices and Visions Festival, and in workshops at the internationally-renowned Pineapple Dance Studio in London. New and established theatre companies have visited and worked with our students, such as Big Brum, Vamos, Perfect Circle and Calanit.
