From this September as, due to demand, we are launching A level Theatre Studies into the Downside School curriculum. Also, from September 2020, we plan to add Drama at GCSE.

We are delighted that our cohort relish performing arts and, with the Abbey Church, our 400-seat Fleischner Theatre, a music-dedicated Mac Studio and a Recording Studio, pupils have everything they need to further their arts studies and express themselves through performance.

To assist with these additions to the curriculum, we welcome a new Drama and A level Theatre Studies teacher to School this September, Mrs McGarry. Mrs McGarry will also be the new House Mistress of Caverel.

We also now offer Theatre Studies scholarships at 16+ and Drama scholarships at 13+. For entry in 2020, we invite talented performers to audition for an award on Tuesday 12th November 2019 for 16+, and Wednesday 29th January 2020 for 13+.
