Hive Drama School offers a space where students can safely explore the world of drama. Drama promotes tolerance and mutual respect as children work together to create theatre and explore imaginative experiences. At Hive, our drama students are provided with the opportunities to learn and develop communication skills, creativity, self-expression and problem-solving skills. Students learn to listen, negotiate, share ideas and work collaboratively. Hive drama is the perfect setting for exploring these skills in a safe non-threatening environment.

YEARS (1-2), (3-4) & (5-6)

Primary Drama

For our primary age students our drama team will provide the opportunities to really discover and explore the true meaning of dramatic play. Students will be supported to experiment with role-play as well as developing important social skills (listening, negotiating, initiating new ideas and problem solving in a team). In addition to developing key drama skills to build their craft upon, our primary students will develop key skills in devising.

Devising theatre empowers all of our students to contribute and collaborate which in turn produces a rich and rewarding experience for all. Furthermore, our students’ learning and development progresses through improvisations that are based on a theme, action or relationship that is of common interest to all. Through improvisation students develop ideas and are encouraged to take risks in a supportive and inclusive environment.

UNIFORM REQUIRED: Perfroming arts students are required to wear the studio shirt to class every week. Purchase your shirt via the Client Portal.

YEARS (7-8) & (9-12)

Teen Drama

Our teens are provided with the opportunities to investigate and explore the craft of drama in accordance and with relevance to their age group. Our teenagers feel empowered to collaborate alongside their peers and teachers in order to explore the factors which contribute to the building blocks of a play including plot, characters, structure, style and form as well as exploring various settings and staging.

Students are encouraged to develop their understanding of narrative, focus and structure whilst attending to the careful planning and consideration of the audience’s perspective. Furthermore, our older students are encouraged and taught to experiment and play with imaginative concepts and to jump into the abyss of the unknown.
