Our Curriculum Intent

Drama is a creative and challenging subject and is enjoyed by all students who study it!

Drama gives students transferable skills that will help them in all aspects of their lives. We also work closely with Music and Dance making sure that students can develop their practical skills.

If a student has a desire to perform or work backstage, the Drama teachers will spot this and help students to make the most of it. Students learn about the elements of Drama and how to collaborate and work in groups. They learn how to use Drama elements in performance to an audience.

Students are expected to work in an independent manner as they push and challenge themselves whilst creating interesting, mature and creative pieces of work. Groups are taught in mixed ability, with every student given the opportunity to use their imagination and being creative.

Students should be willing to perform for their peers, as well as work successfully in a group to produce a final piece. Students are given many opportunities to work on building their confidence and presentation skills. Students will be encouraged to talk about what was effective in their Drama and why.
