Drama and Theatre Studies
Drama is about developing our students’ imagination, creativity, confidence, clarity of communication and understanding of the world around them.
Through acting and improvisation; devising, performance and careful evaluation of their own and others work, students also develop their powers of critical analysis and aesthetic judgment.
We have a rich and varied GCSE curriculum that will inspire students to create imaginative work as well as teach students key life skills. Drama builds confidence, promotes self-esteem, develops communication and public speaking skills all in a supportive environment. Students will develop your skills as a performer and/or designer. They will work closely with peers working as a team and no two lessons are ever the same. It is fast paced and energetic. If you have a passion for Drama and a love of films, TV and theatre, then Drama GCSE is for you!
The study of theatre engages students in an exploration of the world from multiple perspectives, while developing artistic skills and cultivating their capacities for collaboration, critical-thinking, creative problem-solving, and effective communication.
