Confidently performing on stage and developing technical and design skills.
Everything they need for the perfect performance
Our Drama department is equipped with excellent facilities, with both large and small-scale productions held every year enabling our students to develop into adventurous, confident young adults.
Our 500-seat professional style theatre sits alongside our intimate studio theatre for smaller plays and examination work. Our venues have their own lighting and sound equipment, with productions enhanced by our wardrobe, props and scenery store.
Our A Level Theatre Studies results reflect our students’ dedication to combining their performing talent with analytical written work.
Drama and Public Speaking Lessons
A number of Berkhamsted students take extra Drama and public speaking lessons leading to LAMDA and English Speaking Board (ESB) examinations. These accredited examinations and the higher grades count toward points on our Sixth Form students’ UCAS applications.
In previous years, close to 400 LAMDA examinations were taken by students from Years 3 to 13, with a 100% pass rate and many distinctions awarded.

The school delivers on its motto of ‘Developing Remarkable People’ – students are notably engaging and enjoy taking part in everything the school has to offer.
Clearly an academically driven department, it’s refreshing to meet the Head of Sixth, Martin Walker, and hear that the students get the support and encouragement to find and follow their own path whatever that may be – from setting up their own business or doing an apprenticeship.
