The true purpose of arts education is not necessarily to create more professional actors or artists. It’s to create more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds and lead their own lives.
To develop young peoples’ understanding of Drama and Theatre as a lens through which to view the world in order to understand the culture and value of others.
Through Drama, our students will be guided through a journey that allows them to be self-assured and reflective practitioners. They will develop their understanding of the processes of creation and collaboration as a means to express their own thoughts and feelings of the world around them, whilst developing their belief in themselves and in the opportunities that the challenges of life offer.
To enable young people to use Drama as a lens to view the world so they can see through the darkness of difference to the light of diversity and community.
