You’ll like the way we encourage THEATRICAL TALENT from studio to stage.


It’s the way drama is taught AT EVERY STAGE of school life at Wakefield Girls’.

Wakefield Girls’ is where acting talent finds a voice. Our vibrant and creative drama department offers opportunities for students of all ages to perform, direct, design and stage manage productions. In addition to timetabled lessons, Music Theatre Showcase runs every Thursday afternoon as part of our EDGE programme and a range of drama clubs encourage students to improvise and let their imaginations run free.

Previous shows have included:

  • The Little Shop of Horrors
  • Matilda
  • The Addams Family
  • Sister Act
  • Peter Pan

Nurturing a talent for drama and a taste for performance. 

Every year, an array of productions take place in our purpose- built drama studio and halls and many students love to take part. Through these performances, they learn to express themselves clearly and confidently while building friendships through shared acting experiences. In Year 6, Juniors have the opportunity to perform in a much-anticipated production just before they transition to Seniors. Our annual production enables a large number of students to hone their performance, direction, design, sound, lighting and stage management skills.
