The National Independent Schools’ Drama Association
NISDA is organised by a committee of teachers, technicians and theatre managers, and we run our annual conference for all those who teach, direct or support classroom drama or co-curricular theatre in the UK independent school sector. Conference is an invigorating balance of affordable and professional training, networking opportunities and entertainment.
To promote the study and practice of drama and theatre in independent schools
What we do
We hold an annual 3 day residential conference during the Summer half term hosted by a different school each year providing practical workshops, support and networking opportunities.
Membership is open to anyone supportive of our aims as an association and you automatically become a member following payment of conference fees. It lasts for the full year following conference.
