We strongly believe that being involved in Drama provides students with experiences that develop not only theatre skills but essential life skills.

Drama at Trent is a focal point for creativity and self-expression. We have three well-equipped designated drama areas and employ our own Designer.

Each year we stage three events; one large scale production, one studio production and a set of skills based workshops. This means every student has the chance to be in a project or performance, whether as an actor or as part of the crew.

Our productions range in scale and style, and offer students the chance to work with professional theatre practitioners, to enhance performance skills, learn stage and costume design, stage management and how to become fully competent theatre technicians. From students who want to join in for fun to aspiring actors, we cater for all our students' needs.

  • learning about leading and working in a team effective
  • developing self-confidence and self-presentation
  • increasing empathy
  • developing problem solving
  • enhancing communication skills
  • learning about trust and risk taking
  • to acquire artistic appreciation
