Preparing children for life's horizons




The study of drama teaches us about ourselves, and helps us to make sense of other people.


Drama is about listening to each other, thinking creatively, sharing ideas and making things happen.

Being in a play teaches teamwork and our recent performance of "Lord of the Flies" demonstrated how exceptionally Thornlow pupils work together. Nothing boosts confidence like performing in front of an audience of friends.

And the ability to stand up and speak in public is a very valuable life skill!
