Drama in Action

Poetry and prose are explored through drama activities to encourage students to use their imagination, develop their thinking skills and enjoy using language creatively and expressively. 
This programme culminates in a performance for peers and/or parents at the end of the course.

Readers’ Theatre

Students’ reading fluency and vocal expression are improved through group reading exercises and language exploration. The course culminates in a presentation to peers and/or parents, which builds confidence in presentation skills, encourages teamwork and develops performance skills. 


Students learn about story structures, characterisation, development of plot and various storytelling strategies. Classes aim to build the students’ ability to present text in Standard English that is both vocally and physically expressive. Creativity and imagination are harnessed as students develop original stories to share with their peers and/or parents. 

Speech & Drama

Speech & Drama allows students to build confidence and self-esteem, and to master the techniques necessary for effective communication of the spoken word. Classes build the students’ command of Standard English, promote enjoyment of language in all its forms, and produce students who are vocally and physically expressive with speech that is clear, colourful and individual.

Presentation Skills

Students learn to prepare and present talks and speeches confidently and with enjoyment. The course builds awareness of the differing needs of listeners, enabling students to adapt language and presentation to suit these needs. 
As part of this programme, students can be prepared for Communication Skills examinations with Trinity College London. 

Basic Debating Skills

This programme gives participants opportunities to develop critical thinking, to speak confidently on a wide range of topical and social issues, and to persuade an audience with creative, well-structured arguments.

Students hone their persuasive speaking capabilities as they engage in mini debates or persuasive presentations and receive constructive feedback.

Broadcast Journalism  

This programme allows students to learn and apply skills related to broadcast journalism and compering. They will learn interviewing skills as well as be exposed to the correct etiquette involved in speaking in different public situations. Techniques, skills and confidence are built through practical work.
