Drama at Friern Barnet School is an opportunity for students to participate in creating and developing practical work with their peers. Throughout their time with us, all students are encouraged to work in a positive, supportive manner, as well as aiming to extend and perfect their performance abilities.
From the start of Year 7, all students will be involved in devising and exploring play texts and themes and working to create pieces of performance drama to share with their peers. Imagination and creativity are encouraged, as well as important group work and social skills, all in an exciting but supportive environment.
The Drama department works collaboratively with the rest of the Performing and Visual Arts faculty throughout the year, to produce exciting extra curricular events.
In addition there are opportunities for students to develop their skills through extra curricular clubs, available for all year groups. We believe that all students should have the opportunities to participate and to achieve in front of their peers, friends and family, enhancing their self-confidence and creative thinking.
