Culloden Academy is a fantastic school in Inverness.
Here at Culloden Academy we take Drama very seriously and we’re lucky to have amazing facilities that allow us to provide drama lessons for every year group in the school from S1 through to S6.
We have two well stocked drama studios for teaching and presenting practical and exam work, as well as a fantastic theatre for staging our productions…
There are lots of other aspects of performing that we enjoy offering to our pupils.
Recently we have staged TWO whole school musical productions to great acclaim! Hop on over to our MT blog if you fancy finding out some more…
Ms Wallace is our resident dancer (although she is probably a bit old these days to be classed as a ‘dancer’…) She choreographs our musicals, has run the Dance Leaders Award Programme and still runs after school dance classes for all pupils.
Ms Van Exan leads the Film Club for senior pupils, allowing pupils to make and edit their own films, often entered into local competitions.
Mrs Henderson leads the Puppetry Club for pupils in S1 – S3.
If you are interested in any of these extra curricular activities, see the teacher in charge for up to date info on where and when the classes take place.
We have a super team of Drama Prefects who organise our events and keep our department looking beautiful. For session 2016/2017 we are working with Drama students Rhona Martin, Kari Williamson, Emily – Louise MacDonald and Ecem Demirel. All super actors, motivators and role models!
Our blog is here to show everyone the amazing work that all of the students and staff here in the Drama Department do and to keep everyone in touch with what’s going on right now in our school and community.
We also have a Twitter account to help keep you all in the loop – we’ll be sharing news, what’s on the stage, reviews and (dare we say) homework reminders!!! Follow us @cullodendrama.

We love Drama here at Culloden Academy, and we hope you do too!
