Drama and performance form a major part of life at Shrewsbury International School.
From the first days at school, children in our Early Years classes find their voice through singing, dancing and acting. As they get older, pupils progress to class-led assemblies, performance poetry, whole year group productions and auditioned performances to packed houses in the Memorial Hall.
The curriculum study of Drama and Theatre (from Year 7), and the opportunity to perform at all age levels, helps to develop valuable transferable skills that benefit learning in other areas of the curriculum, and beyond, including:
Leadership, communication, time management, collaboration and support of others, patience, creativity, imagination, adaptability, listening, focus, courage, stamina and confidence.
These skills, developed through the curriculum and extended through the vibrant co-curricular programme benefit all students, and for some develop a passion for acting and theatre production that leads to study at university level.
