At St Francis we recognise the importance of Drama and the Performing Arts in our children’s development.
Children from Junior Prep onwards have a weekly Drama lesson which enables them to have a great deal of fun whilst developing their imaginative and presentational skills. Learning how to work together and building up individual self-confidence and ability are of equal importance. Every child is able to take part in at least one exciting performance for parents and friends during the school year and there are other opportunities for acting and reading skills to be displayed at local festivals or within the school community.
Tuition for LAMDA examinations (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) is offered as an extra activity with a termly charge for all children in Years 3-8. Lessons are weekly and generally children work in pairs preparing duologues.
