At The Heritage Private School, strong attention is given to the performing arts as an important area in the development and enhancement of many life skills, including self-confidence and self-esteem.
We believe that Drama gives students the fundamental life skills of communication, empathy, presentation, confidence, teamwork, responsibility, awareness, and reliability. The School aims to be recognised as the best school in Cyprus for preparing students who wish to continue studying Drama and the Performing Arts at a higher level, and also for those who wish to develop a professional career in these disciplines. Many graduates of The Heritage Private School have pursued Drama, Musical Theatre and related subjects at degree level, and/or embarked on a career in the Performing Arts.
The School’s Drama Department staff are already experienced teachers of GCSE, AS Level and A Level Drama & Theatre Studies. Performing Arts at the Heritage (PATH) was additionally created in 2010 to further the School’s plans for the Performing Arts, and extend opportunities to other Heritage and external students.
PATH holds classes (see details below) in singing, dancing and drama, and related disciplines.
The quality of the School and PATH productions is consistently high, and many have been favourably compared to the standard of West End performances. A production is staged every year, with the School and PATH taking responsibility for the production in alternate years.
The School’s Drama Department also arranges very enjoyable, enriching and educational drama trips for the older Drama students, including visits to London to see shows, participate in workshops with actors, and spend a whole day at the Globe Theatre learning through practical and entertaining sessions and workshops.
