I thoroughly enjoyed studying A-level drama at Chobham! The facilities were amazing, and the teachers were extremely knowledgeable about the way the acting industry works. It set me up perfectly for drama school and what to expect in a professional acting environment. The theatre and studios are equal to, if not better than many of the theatres I have worked in. The course certainly fosters your creativity and gets you focused, not only on your growth as a performer, but how to work in an ensemble. I would urge anyone wanting to develop their craft further to consider A-level Drama at Chobham.

A-Level Drama at Chobham academy is a great place to develop your learning and express yourself simultaneously. The dedicated teachers provide a supportive environment where we as students can all grow as individuals and as performers. Because of this, as a drama student, my confidence has grown tremendously, and I feel more comfortable when performing in front of people. Being a member of the Chobham Academy drama class has felt like being in a family, where I feel safe to make mistakes and I am given many opportunities to grow as a performer.

Ezrae Maye - Current Y13

Studying A-Level Drama at Chobham Academy has allowed me to enhance my confidence as a person as well as an actor. With its immersive group tasks that take me out of my comfort zone, I am placed in scenarios I never envisioned myself in, all which improve my communication and teamwork skills. The teachers are always supportive and willing to help me when I need it. Picking A-Level Drama was one of my favourite things about Chobham Academy!

Johan Orliaku – Current Y13

The Drama Department’s ethos is for every student to be accepted for who they are and to be recognised for their unique abilities and talents. If it wasn’t for the Drama teachers at Chobham Academy, I most likely would not have achieved a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies and I have now progressed my career further by undertaking a Drama PGCE in Secondary Education.
