All the world’s a stage

Children at The Downs use their drama skills for the future

Through participation in drama, children gain important life skills that are not just essential for the stage but for their future lives. Drama is used as a tool in all areas of the curriculum – to bring the subject to life and give balance to a well-rounded education.

As well as having fun, children build confidence, learn to control their nerves and cooperate as a team. They develop the skills to stay focused and improve their speed of thought and imagination.

Our children develop a joy of performing together, from the nativity play in reception, to the annual plays for each year group, and finally writing and performing their own Year 8 review. This awakening of each individual’s talents makes my job a real joy.
