Many visitors to Knighton remark upon the ease and unselfconsciousness of children here — their comfort with performance of all kinds. From the first steps in the Pre-Prep, Knighton children are encouraged to perform, helping them develop vital confidence.

We often take part in drama workshops and visit productions at local senior schools and regularly invite professional theatre groups into school. All girls in the prep school undertake drama as part of their Personal Enrichment Programme.

Knighton’s spring and summer productions are eagerly anticipated by pupils and parents alike. Over the last few years we have enjoyed ‘Guys and Dolls’, ‘The Pirates of the Curry Bean’, ‘Animal Farm’, and ‘Shakespeare Rocks’. The Alphas write their own pantomime for the Christmas party and each year we are all enchanted by The Orchard Christmas play.
