Drama is a key component of the wider education offered at Harrow Hong Kong. It encompasses all of the leadership attributes, while also equipping students with key skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.
In the Lower School, students learn Drama skills through literacy and other curriculum areas; there are also many opportunities for students to get involved in performances, from class assemblies to the annual showcase that is the Year 5 Play.
In Years 6 to 9, students learn Drama as part of the curriculum, receiving one lesson each week. During these lessons they continue to develop their confidence, creativity and collaborative skills, while simultaneously learning about a range of different genres, issues and practitioners. Students are given the opportunity to study GCSE Drama in Years 10 and 11 so that they can explore the subject in greater depth.
Students in the Upper School have numerous chances to get involved in extra-curricular Drama activities: two major productions are performed each year and there are an increasing number of smaller performance events. The School is a member of the International Schools Theatre Association, which enables us to offer such exciting opportunities as short-term artists in residence and regular trips to Drama festivals around Asia. In conjunction with the English Department, frequent trips are run to see high quality professional theatre being performed in Hong Kong.
