Key Stage 3

Drama is an extremely popular subject in Years 7 and 8 with many student claiming it to be their favourite lesson of the week!

While we are looking at performance techniques and acting skills for the first two years, the focus in Year 7 is actually on life skills through the medium of drama.  Students develop confidence, social skills, self-esteem and imagination whilst still building a foundation of understanding of what drama is and how it plays a role in society.  

The end of the first year culminates with the entire cohort of students taking part in the highly successful Year 7 Drama Festival.  This event gives every student the chance to experience the atmosphere of live performance and is the highlight of the year for many students.  Parents are invited along and the whole evening is a celebration of our students’ abilities and success.

Year 8 follows straight on from the Year 7 festival with a Christmas themed performance which is prepared in lessons and performed at the end of the term.  The final two terms continue to develop drama skills to a more advanced level and also give a taster of the work which is carried out for the KS4 BTEC Performing Arts course to prepare those who wish to pursue the subject further.

Key Stage 4

BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Award in Performing Arts

Exam Board: Pearson (Edexcel)

BTEC Performing Art

Students opting for this subject will be required, at times, to work outside of normal school hours. For example; evening performances to public audiences and additional rehearsals outside of lesson time.

This course is challenging and creative and allows students to develop skills in a number of different areas. Students will develop acting and performance skills as well as an overall understanding of the theatre.  Students will get the chance to take part in workshops delivered by professional actors and practitioners. This course requires a lot of commitment, hard work and self-discipline.
