Junior Speech and Drama (Ages 9-12 3rd-6th Class): This 2.5 hour class is broken into the speech class — exercises for clear and confident speech, reading aloud, story-telling and public speaking, solo performance pieces — and drama class — group scenes, improvisation, mime, and character work.

During our Autumn Term (Late August/Early September to December) students prepare build foundational skills in voice, acting and movement and prepare solo performance material for showcasing in our end of term class showcase and (optionally) our internal competition and external exams. In the Winter Term (January to Easter) the students prepare for a large scale production taking place in a professional theatre. In our Spring term (Easter to June) our students cover a range of performing arts skills such as movement, stage combat, design and devising and more.
