If you are happy and have just taken on a new role, I don't see why you would want to move. You are tempting fate.
As it is unusual to be able to lead such a large department in your subject I would stay where you are. In moving to AH jobs the fact you have managed a large group of staff will I suspect be more valuable than changing schools to a smaller department with a tighter focus on drama. I would try to work in some cross-school experience into your present role as that will also help. As you have only been a HoD for a year, you do have more to learn about the role and it will be easier where you are at present.
