Drama is outstanding at Rushden Academy. It is varied and you learn a broad range of skills and it helps with confidence. It also teaches important skills such as teamwork and creativity

Having drama lessons has improved my social confidence and my performing ability greatly and my classmates are extremely supportive. Drama always puts a smile on my face.

Drama teaches you a range of skills, for example confidence building and learning to accept people. Drama unlocks and enables you to do things you never knew you were capable of.
