The numerous extra-curricular opportunities for drama at Wetherby Prep include a variety of performance related projects, optional LAMDA exams, poetry recitals for all the boys in the school and a weekly drama club. Years 3 and 4 have the opportunity to perform in the Lower School Nativity in December, gaining confidence on the stage and bringing the whole school community together at Christmas.

In addition to this, boys learn to use drama techniques within lessons such as role play, improvisation and script writing. Stage management and prop design also form part of the whole Drama experience culminating in a pupil led performance by the Upper School which takes place at the end of the spring term.
