Westcliff Drama is going from strength to strength

Westcliff Drama is going from strength to strength, and the School was delighted to celebrate this with the awarding of certificates and colours. Last summer, more than one hundred pupils undertook LAMDA Examination for the first ever time, and achieved a very high proportion of Passes with Distinction. The very strongest performers in each of the School's three pathways (Acting, Public Speaking, Verse and Prose) were awarded their certificates in Main School Assembly by the Headmaster. With numbers this year growing by more than fifty percent, LAMDA continues to thrive at WHSB.

The current year sees another busy year of performances, following the School's well-reviewed performance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the summer. The first production, an Agatha Christie triple bill (photographs also shared here), ran extremely smoothly, and rehearsals are well underway for the School musical Les Misérables, which will be performed in March. To celebrate the hard work that has gone into these successes, colours were awarded to 24 pupils from Years 8 to the Upper Sixth who have been so central to Drama performances over the past year. The School is proud of their achievements for which these pupils should be congratulated and celebrated.

We would also like to thank Mr Jeffreys and his colleagues for all their commitment and support to the pupils in their achievements.
