Drama is taught throughout KS3. The emphasis is on developing students' communication and teamwork skills. The drama programmes of study are carefully designed to build students' confidence and develop their voice and movement skills. Students are also introduced to a range of dramatic genres and an awareness of the cultural place of Drama within our society.
Examples of topics studied include Storytelling, Greek Theatre, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory and Peer Pressure.
In Years 9 and 10 students are studying the BTEC Level 2 First Award in Performing Arts
In Year 11 students are studying AQA GCSE Drama
In year s 12 and 13 we offer the Level 3 BTEC Performing Arts Subsidiary Diploma which is the equivalent of one A level and provides students with a practically based opportunity to explore a wide range of dramatic performance styles.
