Speech and Drama

Imagine a school that produces a first team rugby player and the same scholar also has as the confidence and passion to pursue drama and excel at eisteddfods and school productions. This is the caliber of all-rounded scholar that we produce at Penryn.

Speech & Drama encompasses a variety of disciplines, including the performing arts, public speaking and debating. Our highly seasoned drama team taps into the creative essence of each scholar.

Drama is offered from Grade 4 through Grade 12 – as a weekly activity for our Prep scholars and then as a subject for our College Scholars.

Our major drama productions from Junior through to Senior Phase, are always an eagerly anticipated event in our school calendar. In the College, our scholars also participate in cultural derbies and eisteddfods.

Debating is more than just an extramural offering at Penryn, it is part of our culture. Each year, we host political debates and invite topical guest speakers to address our scholars. Our scholars, time-and-time-again, show us that they are confident, attune with current affairs and are critical thinkers.
