iNTRODUCTION

Drama is an integral part of school life at Warden Park. It is available as a GCSE option from Year 9 and students have the opportunity to get involved in our annual production from Year 7. 

School production

Every year, the whole school production provides students with invaluable experience of performance and design skills. In recent years, productions have included Guys & Dolls, Fiddler on the Roof and the Madness inspired "Our House".

Many Drama students take leading acting roles.

Our students have the opportunity to get involved with building the set, making properties, running the lighting and sound and creating the costumes and make-up.
