We regard Drama highly at Monmouth Prep School as an invaluable vehicle for encouraging and nurturing many essential attributes and skills.

Acting requires courage, focus and commitment, collaboration with others, problem-solving and decision-making, engenders confidence in public speaking, as well as demanding a high level of reading and listening skills.

All pupils take part in a weekly drama class and can opt for additional lessons outside of the school’s curriculum.

We teach Drama in weekly classes from Year 4 onwards and encourage all our pupils to push themselves within a safe, supportive and nourishing environment. 

We want our children to have fun in Drama and we provide them with the perfect platform in which to flourish and shine on and off the stage.  

Our girls and boys have confidence-building opportunities to perform before an audience several times a year in whole-school productions and smaller scale shows. 

We tailor our Drama classes specifically towards the maturity of each year group and our children.  

Our pupils enjoy a range of dynamic, exciting and challenging performance-related tasks and exercises covering numerous styles of performance; from group-devising to Shakespeare and Brecht; from masks, and mime to script-writing and melodrama.   

As a practising theatre performer and musician with more than 30 years’ experience in the industry, our Drama teacher brings a unique perspective to every class in the school.
