This stands for the Bishopshalt Operatic and Dramatic Society.   As BODS we hold one annual show per year which consists primarily of our upper school students.  This show takes place in early December each year.

Auditions are open to students attending the school and take place the first week back after the summer holidays. 

Details, including photographs, of past shows can be seen under the show headings and in the BODS Photo Album along with an independant report from our NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Society) representative (he gives his review on the show and the performance). 

Junior BODS has been running for the last few years and is for our younger students, KS3.  These performances take place in mid July.  Auditions are held at the end of the Spring term.
