All students at Key Stage 3 have one Drama lesson each week. These lessons allow students to work with others and achieve their very best and foster an atmosphere of peer support and constructive criticism.
The schemes of work in Drama explore many issues and themes as well as teaching a range of drama techniques, skills and genres. The schemes of work allow students to engage in teacher, peer and self-assessments and provide the foundations for GCSE Drama as students will develop their knowledge and skills in devising, performing and appreciating elements of production such as lighting and set design.
Home learning is set every two weeks in Year 7 and 8 and acts as means of consolidation or preparation of for lessons.
