in School Life

Taking part in Drama at school is an ideal opportunity for pupils to develop their confidence, meet new people and have fun!

At Adams all pupils study drama as part of the curriculum in Years 7, 8 and 9. Pupils can chose to take Drama as a GCSE or they can opt to continue their interest as part of their extra-curricular activities. Further information on the Drama GCSE can be found on the Curriculum page of the website, within the GCSE Options booklets. 

Dixon Cup

The Dixon Cup is one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the school calendar. Led by their House Captains the pupils organise their entries into the various categories of the competition which include set scenes, public speaking, dance and a group contribution. The most successful Houses are normally those who involve a wide spectrum of pupils from across their House. In recent years over half of the school's pupils have taken to the stage as part of their House's contribution to the Dixon Cup competition.

The Dixon Cup takes places in the second half of the Autumn Term. The 2017 winners were Darwin House.

Drama Club

The Drama Club welcomes members from across the school from Year 7 to the Upper Sixth. This age spread helps to create a unique environment where pupils can work together and develop their skills. In 2018 the Drama Club put on a production of Robert Bolt's classic comedy tale The Thwarting of Baron Bolligrew.
