Drama thrives at Sexey’s. By taking part in the Key Stage and Whole School Productions, students grow in creativity and push the boundaries of their imagination. They are conversant with modern theatre practice, attending regular theatre trips to London, Bristol and Yeovil. We welcome touring theatre companies into school for tailored school productions that complement the curriculum.

July 2019: Charlie Cool’s
Charlie Cool’s is a café in the centre of a small town, somewhere in Britain during the 1950’s, where you can enjoy a milkshake and a laugh away from nagging parents and the pressures of school. It’s where friends chat, hearts break and the elusive love of your life is an ever-changing, eternal possibility.
The upcoming Big Talent Show that will be hosted there promises a cash prize and a terrific career boost in show business. Will Fred win the contest and the girl of his dreams or will events spiral out of control?
