Drama is an important strand of Bedford Girls' School's rich cultural heritage, designed to promote student confidence, creativity and imagination. Drama enables girls to develop a wide variety of essential life skills, including co-operation, collaboration, and communication.
We believe experiencing drama as a discrete subject from a young age enables our girls to grow into confident, thoughtful and articulate individuals. To which end we provide an exciting, well-structured programme of study which encourages girls to be bold, imaginative and reflective. All girls in Years 3 - 9 have drama lessons taught by specialist teachers as part of their core curriculum. The subject can then be chosen for study at GCSE, A Level or as part of the IB.
We are fortunate to have not one, but two drama studios as well as the larger Randle Hall. The main drama studio is well equipped and used for small-scale productions and showcase evenings. Our larger productions take place in the Assembly Hall.
We offer an extensive range of co-curricular opportunities which include speech and drama lessons, as well as the opportunity to take part in the school’s youth theatre, drama clubs, theatre trips and an amazing variety of performance opportunities. Performances this year include ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’, ‘The Sweeney Todd Shock 'n' Roll Show’, ‘Blood Wedding’ and ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat', plus experimental drama presentations and showcases.
