Drama and Theatre

Drama gives children the opportunity to explore and the freedom to imagine. Drama at LCS is about producing a learning environment where pupils can explore the world and their relationship to it, develop their self-awareness and understand others through fictional contexts. We use drama to help pupils develop on a social, moral, linguistic and creative level. The majority of this work is carried out in lessons where drama is used as a learning medium and the work is part of an ongoing experience, not intended for public display. However, some of the work involves developing stagecraft skills so that dramatic productions can be polished, rehearsed and presented to a larger, formal audience using school facilities and professional venues.
