Drama has become a larger part of school life with successful productions of Little Shop of Horrors, My Fair Lady, Oliver, Cats ,Grease and, most recently, Les Misérables. The school is noted locally for its excellent learning support centre which helps dyslexic and dyspraxic children as well as children with behavioral difficulties.
