Drama Therapy

Our Drama Therapists are provided by Roundabout Dramatherapy.  They work with individuals and groups of students across all of our school years.

Dramatherapy involves verbal and non-verbal work and makes use of a wide range of theatrical and dramatic techniques, such as story-telling, story-making and enactment, improvisation, role-play, mime, puppets, movement, music and voice work.

The general aims of Roundabout’s dramatherapy sessions include:

  • Building trusting relationships
  • Expressing and exploring feelings
  • Developing social interaction skills
  • Developing artistic and creative skills
  • Improving self-image and self-confidence
  • Working with the imagination
  • Creating opportunities and skills for self-advocacy
  • Having fun

There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent Survey 2018
