DRAMA & THEATRE STUDIES A-LEVEL
Examination Board: EDUQAS
Course Leaders: Mr G Hammett
Entry Requirements: Minimum 6 GCSEs at Grade 9-4 mainly at Grade 6 or above. English Language at Grade 5 or evidence of performance.
You will improve your performance skills, study a range of drama forms and discuss texts critically and analytically. You will be expected to attend the theatre frequently. There are
three components all of which have a written element:
the reinterpretation of a text using the ideas of a key practitioner or theatre company to include a log detailing decisions made
a devised piece based on a stimulus using the ideas of a different practitioner or theatre company, plus a scripted performance and a portfolio of written evidence
a written exam in Year 13 based on three set texts, part of which requires you to analyse live theatre.
Future Prospects: Drama develops confidence, team-work and communication skills necessary to all career routes. Students can continue to study Drama at Higher Education.
