The aim of Drama at Acton High School is to develop a discipline and focus within each student so that they grow into effective and sympathetic communicators on and off the stage. Throughout KS3 students are given chance to explore many different techniques, skills and focuses. We aim to promote self-discovery and risk taking which will allow the students to grow in confidence, express themselves well, work in teams, and tackle the challenges of the world at large.
