Performing at SCHS has boosted my confidence, opened so many doors to me and landed me amazing roles on stage and on screen

What it Means to be a SCHS Drama Scholar

Our scholars are girls in whom we see exceptional talent or potential. Our drama scholars are invited to participate in scholar-specific trips and workshops as well as all SCHS drama events, which include:

  • Termly school productions
  • Workshops with professional theatre companies
  • Trips to to major London Theatres

Just as we nurture their talent and provide unique, door-opening opportunities, our scholars also serve as role models to inspire and encourage others in the school and the wider community, whether its leading clubs for younger girls, or special assemblies.


  • Large drama studio
  • Abundant costume cupboard
  • Two performing arts spaces with professional lighting and sounds systems

Our staff

Meet one of Our Drama Scholars: Izzy

Izzy joined SCHS in the Upper Third as a drama scholar. Now in Upper Fifth she is accomplished actress, performing in all school productions including Annie, Oliver and Second Person Narrative. She has appeared in national television adverts and on notable BBC Dramas. Izzy hopes to peruse a career in acting once she leaves school.

Being a scholar has allowed me to make friends with girls from all year groups. We have regular scholars’ meetings and go on trips to see plays together. I have learnt a lot from older girls and I hope younger girls will learn from me too.
