Performance Arts


We have comprehensive Performing Arts facilities including a 300 seat auditorium, a theatre workshop, a dance studio and two drama studios.

The Howard Hall is a large and flexible space which forms the centerpiece of the School’s Performing Arts area. It features:

  • Comprehensive lighting rig and sound system
  • Seating which can also be curtained off to create an atmospheric events area 
  • Adjoining the theatre is a large scenery workshop, green room, prop and costume store and dressing facilities.

“I wouldn’t have been able to get into LAMDA had it not been for the support and encouragement I received from BMS. My A Level in Theatre Studies gave me the practical experience to develop my career after leaving.”

Drama Room 1 is a large space adjoining the Howard Hall and the Music School. It is used for classroom drama, as a rehearsal room and peripatetic Dance Lessons and contains a comprehensive sound system, video projection facilities, a mirrored wall and ballet bar.

Drama Room 2 and The Studio are smaller ‘black box’ spaces used for classroom drama from Years 7 to 13. They contain lighting facilities, and up to date projection and sound systems.

Speech and Drama is taught at School House – away from the hustle and bustle of the main School. Several teaching rooms are available as well as a small library of play-scripts.
