Drama at Cathedral
Extracurricular lessons in Speech and Drama provide an opportunity for students to develop their oral skills and confidence in delivery, in both individual and group performances.
This activity is provided by a private tutor and students have one group lesson (60 minutes) per week.
Advanced students may have individual or small group lessons to prepare for Eisteddfod and examinations on request.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in school productions. Junior School musicals and Middle/Senior School productions occur in alternate years. These are large scale events that involve large numbers of students taking part as actors, musicians and backstage crew.
In 2012, Middle and Senior School students presented a hugely successful production of "13 - a new musical".
'13 - a new musical’ – All that I can say is ‘Just Wow!’ Joining the show was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life and I feel that being on stage has not only given me a great amount of confidence, but also strengthened my own character off stage. I am just so proud of being given the opportunity to meet, work with and, subsequently, become great friends with so many awesome and unique people. I will undoubtedly miss the endless number of rehearsals with Ms Turner and Ms Clegg and the entire cast, crew and backstage members very much when I graduate from The Cathedral School – the very environment, within which, I have already experienced the dramas and emotional turbulence of a 13 year old’s life. The show was just so real and I felt like I could especially empathise with Evan Goldman; I will definitely apply his dedication, persistence and insane level of courage and confidence to my own life.
