Through role play and reflection the Drama department aims to give students the opportunity to consider their own and others’ attitudes in a controlled environment.
Drama enhances a student’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as well as allowing them to develop as speakers and listeners. Students develop their studies in Drama by developing their drama techniques, performance and theatre skills through a combination of improvisation in lessons and script work.
Throughout the year Drama have a variety of showcases for KS3, KS4 and KS5 where pupils perform work they have produced in lessons.
Exam showcases occur in April and May for the GCSE and A Level work.
The department also organises Theatre trips throughout the year for KS3, KS4 and KS5, some involve workshops prior to the professional performance.
