Drama

As Shakespeare wrote, "All the world is a stage!"  We play many different roles in our everyday lives and having the ability to converse with confidence is crucial in the competitive and challenging world.

Drama is a means of fostering understanding, confidence and communication skills and so it is not surprising that it is an integral part of the curriculum as well as a dynamic part of the extra-curricular life of the school.

From the earliest days in Nursery to the Year 6 production, all pupils are encouraged to share their talents confidently with nativity plays, form assemblies and full scale productions.

Speech and drama lessons are a highly popular option for many in Key Stage 2, with pupils preparing for LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) examinations and performing at the local Godalming Festival.  These classes are a happy and fulfilling experience, providing a safe environment for children to articulate their ideas and feelings; as well as boost their self-esteem by allowing them to find their own voice in the company of their peers.

The younger pupils enjoy dance with our specialist dance provision and St Hilary's hosts an enviable variety of extra-curricular dance clubs after school and on Saturdays with classical ballet, jazz, tap and modern on offer.

Overall creativity abounds and the staff collaborate so that, musical, dance and acting skills are maximised for all and learning is fun.

There is also a Drama Scholarship for a child entering Year 3 and suitable Year 6 candidates are prepared for Drama Scholarships to senior school, regularly winning scholarships.
