Course Content:

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.
