Drama and Performing Arts

Drama and performing arts are very much at the centre of school life and attract students of all ages, interests and backgrounds with the opportunity to perform in public, to develop their creativity in acting and devising and to grow in confidence as individuals.

Drama is housed in beautiful purpose-built accommodation and makes use of the King’s Theatre which is a professional venue for performance.

A popular subject it also provides numerous opportunities throughout the year for students to perform in smaller productions as well as a large-scale whole school production, senior and King's Magna productions, as well as the House competition as part of the wider QE community.

Many students have gone on to great success from their drama and performing arts studies securing places at RADA, LAMDA, AMDA and the Central School of Speech and Drama, and into the theatre and television industries. The drama productions at QE are of an extremely high standard and form an invaluable part of the creative arts experience at the school.
