Don’t Keep Calm Be Dramatic

Drama plays a significant and valuable role at Orley Farm, both as a curriculum subject for every pupil from Reception to year 8 and as an exciting extra-curricular opportunity.

The department aims to create an encouraging and inclusive environment for study in which pupils can ‘find their voice’; raise their self-esteem, develop self-confidence, trust and the ability to work collaboratively – not only in performance but also in their day to day interaction with others.

Drama allows students to communicate ideas and emotions through language, body expression and movement and pupils are encouraged to develop sensitivity towards the feelings, opinions and values of others through purposeful interaction.
