The KS3 drama experience focuses on inspiring students to recognise that drama can equip them with the skills to participate effectively in original work they can be proud of. With creativity at its heart, the course aims to encourage students own individuality through a variety of dramatic styles and stimuli.
GCSE Drama offers students the opportunity to explore drama as a practical art form in which ideas and meaning are communicated to an audience through choices of form, style and convention. Students will create, perform and respond to drama informed by their theoretical knowledge of drama and theatre. The subject content details the knowledge, understanding and skills that students are expected to develop throughout the course of study.
The core aim of the curriculum is to develop independent, creative thinkers who can work collaboratively.
