Drama & Theatre Studies
Drama is very popular at Millfield and is at the heart of our community. We have a vibrant and healthy number of pupils involved across all the year groups. All Year 9 pupils receive approximately eight hours of drama lessons on a rota basis, which are taught during English lessons by our drama specialist staff. Pupils can choose to study Drama at GCSE level and Drama & Theatre Studies at A level.
The department has an excellent track record of getting Sixth Formers into top accredited UK and US Drama Schools such as the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and Central School of Speech & Drama. We coach pupils thoroughly for auditions and provide references.

Enrichment and trips:
Trips are an essential and exciting part of studying drama. We seek out a variety of opportunities for pupils to witness some of the most powerful, engaging and imaginative theatre in the land. A level pupils will visit the theatre at least twice every term. GCSE pupils will visit the theatre at least once a term. In addition to this we also bring touring theatre companies into the school. The department arranges trips overseas including a visit to Broadway, New York, other big trips have included a week at the Edinburgh Festival.
