Speech and Drama


Speech and Drama lessons are a popular co-curricular activity that allow our girls to gain greater confidence, improve performance technique, develop independent thinking, strengthen their communication skills, expand literary appreciation and, of course, have fun.

Girls can study a wide range of Speech and Drama activities including voice, drama, public speaking, social communication, storytelling, stage craft, text interpretation, mime and improvisation. 

Throughout the year there are many opportunities for girls to showcase their talents. Girls can take part in eisteddfods, concerts, public speaking competitions, as well as the AHIGS Festival of Speech. Girls may sit examinations with Trinity College London and in Years 11 and 12 they may present for a Performer’s Certificate or Associate Diploma. Of course, some girls prefer to study Speech and Drama simply for the fun of it, and to share in performance with their friends.

Lessons are individual or small group classes and an initial two-term (one semester) commitment is required.
