Why Study Drama?


Drama is making a welcome return to the KS3 curriculum in response to pupil voice and to help progress at KS4. Pupils learn to use the key voice and movement skills of Drama, as well as understand the discipline that is involved in achieving successful results.  Students in Year 9 will have one hour of Drama each week and this is planned to be extended to other year groups in the near future. They are taught in mixed ability groups.

A popular option at KS4, GCSE Drama (Edexcel Syllabus) sees students develop further by exploring topics and texts stylistically and naturalistically. In addition to the practical examination, students write a review of a live performance they have seen, and an analysis of their own and peers’ practice. They will explore the various media, elements and strategies used to build successful performances
