Drama is a very popular subject at Bloxham run with energy and a focus on building students’ confidence and nurturing their creative talents. Appointed as Director of Drama in September 2016, Sophie Herrmann has an array of impressive professional theatre experience and a track-record of excellent examination results. We have already housed a number of outstanding productions across all year groups.
Key asset to the department is our Wardrobe Mistress, Sally Britton-Snell, who has a wealth of experience in costume design for film, TV and theatre. Their support enables productions and exam performances to reach impressively high standards.
All of the lower school enjoy drama lessons, and a strong number of students opt for GCSE drama and A-level theatre studies.
Students enjoy visits to a range of exciting theatre, with the prestigious RSC, Warwick Arts Centre and Oxford Playhouse on our doorstep, and London’s West End just an hour’s train journey.
