At Surbiton High School, the Drama department strive to unlock and nourish students’ potential in the Performing Arts by providing them with a wide and stimulating curriculum, which is complemented by our diverse co-curricular programme.
Our department’s philosophy states that Drama teaching should nurture the development of each student, whilst ensuring pupils acquire the skills and knowledge base of drama, theatre and cross-curricular topics explored (both practically and theoretically) through the medium of Drama. This nurturing comes from encouraging, challenging, stimulating, positive teaching strategies, which provide the safety and opportunity for the development, the learning, the understanding, and the growth of each individual. When students reach GCSE and A-level, this develops further to enabling them to develop as practitioners in their own right, through stimulating them with exciting material and training them with the necessary skills and theory to achieve in their examinations.
