Drama at Sutton High School

The arts are truly valued at SHS and Drama forms an important part of our curriculum, with all girls studying Drama from Year 7. The subject is popular at GCSE, with around a third of each cohort choosing to study the subject. Several girls continue to A Level each year and there is always excellent uptake for co-curricular activities – almost a quarter of our students are working towards LAMDA qualifications. 

The Department is based in The Study, a well-resourced Drama teaching studio. We also share the use of a further teaching space and our newly refurbished school Hall will open in October 2018, as a fully equipped performance venue.
