We are proud to present the BISP Arts Award Drama Department recipients for the 2022/23 academic year:
Most Improved Performer: Kai
We take great pleasure in recognising the huge improvements made by Kai Galley. When he entered the Drama Studio, as an earnest young performer, little did we know he would flourish into the confident and entertaining actor who is here today. His characterisation is on-point and consistent within performances… We will never forget his exceptional performance as Ms. Trunchbull. Well done, Kai.
Comedy Performer: Eileen
Performing as The Dwarf in Shrek, the Prince of Morocco in The Merchant of Venice and Boggis in Fantastic Mr Fox, this award goes to someone with perfect comedic timing and a witty sense of humour both on and off stage. Eileen consistently turns up to every rehearsal, is always the first to have learnt her lines and performs all roles to a high standard. Well done!
Devising Drama: Kiril
This award goes to lovely Kirill, a mature and sensitive member of the group who gives the most detailed and deliberate feedback to his peers! Kirill has devised some superb pieces of Drama this year, collaborating with his friends to produce original and creative performances. A natural dramatist, well done!
Creative Thinker: Oscar
A student who most definitely deserves this award is Oscar. Consistently devising Drama which challenges, engages and pushes boundaries, Oscar’s creativity inspires others. Oscar has been an exceptional member of the class this year, and shows a flair in devising and creating, as well as performing. Well done!
Dedication to Drama: Pattanasit
This award goes to a student who has consistently exceeded expectations in all aspects of their involvement in the field of drama. Whether it be directing, planning, or performing, his unwavering dedication and unmatched passion for the subject have never gone unnoticed. Congratulations to Mammoth, your commitment to excellence throughout the year has set you apart as a highly enthusiastic and creative force in the realm of drama.
LAMDA Award: Zhanna
This award goes to the person who achieved the highest score in year 12 in this year’s LAMDA exam, despite not taking IB Theatre. Creating PowerPoint and scheduling extra rehearsals and meetings, her dedication and determination throughout the process were impressive. All this makes her deserving of the high distinction that she achieved. Congratulations Zhanna!

He approaches tasks with enthusiasm and maturity. This year, he has shown hard work and commitment which is why this student has become one of the most improved performers in the class.
Creative Character & Movement Award: Eloise
This student is a drama enthusiast who is highly motivated, enthusiastic, and energetic. It is clear that she has a natural talent for drama. What sets this drama student apart is her unique ability to bring a performance to life. Her talent and hard work have not gone unnoticed, and we are sure she will continue to bring many great performances to the stage in the future. Well done Ellie!

This award goes to a student who has consistently shown impeccable behaviour and listening skills. He has displayed unmatched dedication and enthusiasm in every lesson and has been an absolute pleasure to teach. He has been an asset to the class and has acted as a great role model for his peers. We proudly present this award to Noah and hope he will continue to be an inspiration to others. Well done!
