Drama is a highly expressive subject which encourages students to develop their creative, physical, emotional and intellectual capacity.
Studying drama encourages the development of emotional maturity giving pupils an understanding of themselves and others. Whilst there is an emphasis upon developing performance skills, this also encourages confidence in public speaking, planning and problem solving. Drama is taught from First School to A level and pupils will gain a strong foundation of technique as they move through the school. Our curriculum explores a wide variety of styles, genres and texts and promotes the development of all skills.
The key elements of the curriculum are outlined below:
proxemics and creating a stage picture
history of theatre
evaluation and analysis
Pupils will have a variety of performance experiences throughout
their journey through school including ISA competitions, showcases, and School productions.
