Drama

Within Create, it is our intention that over the course of our 5 year curriculum, we want students to be secure in the core skills of team work, communication, co-operation and empathy. We aim to inspire our students to become reflective and creative individuals who have the confidence to explore and question the world around them and build a love of creativity.

Everything we use in life has been designed by someone with an artistic eye, by people who are risk takers, experimenters who are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them.

Our aim is to develop curious, confident young people who learn through doing, who are introduced to a vibrant range of activities and cultural experiences covering a broad spectrum of styles and genres. 

We wish for our students to have an awareness of the ways in which their creativity can be used professionally, laying the foundations for a career.
