Music and Drama clubs: new members are always encouraged to join our Music and Drama Clubs.
Drama has a thriving extra-curricular schedule, and there are numerous opportunities for students to involve themselves in theatrical experiences right from the beginning of Year 7, starting with the Year 7 House Drama competition in the autumn term. Each year the school production takes place in which our younger students just as much as the older ones will be encouraged to participate.
Below are just some of the events that the department has planned:
KS3 Drama club
Main school production, involving students from all years
Drama workshops with visiting theatre companies
Performances in the school summer and Christmas concerts
Theatre trips to local theatres
Annual House Drama Competitions
Visiting theatre company performances
Students are welcome to join lunchtime drama clubs which work towards public performances at school concerts and House Drama competitions. At other times of the year, the department is busy rehearsing at lunchtimes, after school and weekends for the major school production held every year in the school hall. If your child is interested in performing arts, there are many opportunities for them to foster their talent at Thomas Keble, and they will certainly be encouraged to do so!
Peripatetic Music Lessons
Thomas Keble School recognises the importance and value of learning a musical instrument. Not only does it further an individual’s musical interests, abilities and knowledge, but it also helps their personal and emotional development, physical and motor co-ordination and facilitates the learning of a variety of social skills in addition to the development of perseverance and self-discipline.
With that aim in mind, we presently utilise various local specialist teachers to provide the school with a range of extra-curricular lessons and we will seek to maintain that provision and increase it whenever appropriate, in response to the needs and interests of our pupils.
If your child is interested in having lessons, please contact the appropriate teacher. If the interest involves an instrument not covered in the list, please contact the Head of Music and we will endeavour to find a suitable teacher, although obviously no guarantee can be made.
Please ask your son or daughter to speak to Mr Burgess in the Music Department if they require any further information.
