Drama – Extra Curricular Activities

At Sir Robert Pattinson Academy, we pride ourselves on the activities offered outside of the classroom and Drama is no exception. Various activities are available for students, including the following:

• Tech club – Held at lunch time and focussing on Lighting and technical elements of theatre.
• Silhouettes – A shadow theatre club for all students.

BRAND NEW FOR THIS YEAR!

Tech club

Tech club is available to all students who wish to learn about or improve their knowledge of stage lighting. We meet at lunch times to work with the school lighting facilities and build knowledge of operation skills. These meetings are a great way to introduce novices to the lighting board, as well as allowing the more experienced students to develop skills and teach others.
This is an ideal club for students who would like to take a GCSE which can give them credit for these skills, as it can form an assessment module for the final GCSE in Drama.(30%) It is a great way to explore this skill and can open up opportunities for further studies and careers. Alternatively, it is a great way to learn a new skill and socialise with others who share your interests.

Silhouettes

The Silhouettes is our current Drama club. We started in the summer term of 2013 and since then the club has proved to be very popular, with both students and visitors / staff. Following the success of Attraction in Britain’s Got Talent, we decided to set up our own shadow theatre club called the RP Silhouettes.
Since starting in 2013, the group have performed publicly on numerous occasions at various key events, including;

• Information evening 2013
• John Alexander Concert 2013
• Yr 6 induction evening 2014

This year, the group will be performing in the local community at North Hykeham Village Green, as well as at other various open evenings and events.

Many of the performers are in years 7-9, although the club is open to all ages. Our performance topics are current, with our most recent performance of Disney’s Frozen.
