Helping pupils to go further
“During Dance and Drama lessons, I empower even the shyest of pupils to leave their self-consciousness at the door and venture beyond their comfort zone so that they can enjoy the freedom the subject offers.”
Subject Leader for Dance and Drama
Joined The Elms: 2016
Mr Mundy is the inspiring Subject Leader for Dance and Drama at The Elms and works with all pupils from all year groups to explore their imaginations through creativity and self-expression.
LIGHTS. CAMERA. ACTION
Mr Mundy is responsible for directing and producing the shows for each year group, all of which have been a delight for him to work on. Mr Mundy especially enjoys seeing the children’s hard work come together during performances to their families. A particular highlight was the 2019 Year 5 production of Shakespeare and Scones, which Mr Mundy designed, scripted and executed. Another fond memory is the Year 6 show of Aladdin during his first year working at The Elms.

Mr Mundy achieved a BA in Drama, Applied Theatre and Education from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama prior to completing his Primary PGCE teaching qualification.
