Enthusiastic participation in drama helps the development of platform presentation and is a lively voluntary activity.

The School play is produced each year, often performed in the spring term, and is open to all pupils who wish to take part, whether as an actor or in a technical capacity. In recent years the School has performed an adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest, set in a boarding school rather than on an island, and a new play written for the pupils about the domestic life of the 17th Century diarist Samuel Pepys. Both plays used live music composed and performed by the pupils.
