Drama is an enriching part of WGHS life, with a thriving extra-curricular drama programme which extends and complements work undertaken within the curriculum.

Lessons and clubs are centred in the purpose-built drama studio. Lunchtime drama clubs run for Years 7 to 9, with outcomes such as mini-pantos and mask-work performances. In the summer term, the Year 7—9 Drama Competition is a very popular event, well-attended by parents and staff who enjoy the high-quality writing and performing.

There are opportunities for girls wanting to be involved in other aspects of drama, including the sound and lighting team (SALT) and stage management, allowing other skills and technical aspects of performance to be experienced.

Excellent Lower and Senior School productions take place jointly with QEGS each year, resulting in stunning and accomplished performances by large and extremely talented casts.
