Welcome to the Drama Department
We aim to provide students with a range of opportunities to explore plays, issues and genres in a supportive and exciting environment.
Drama is taught for one hour a week in years 7 and 8. After this students can opt to take drama in Year 9 - this will enable students to gain a GCSE qualification.They can then continue studying A Level Drama and Theatre Studies in Year 12.
We are very fortunate to have three purpose built studios equipped with lighting capability and IWB's. We also make full use of Kingsmead's amazing theatre for lessons and performances. Drama is a unique learning medium and we aim to provide all students with a positive environment of trust and respect where every student has an equal opportunity to participate and succeed in the work.
We aim to develop:
Citizenship Commitment Speaking, Listening & Communication Skills Development of Specific Drama Skills including performance Confidence and leadership qualities Evaluation Skills Exploration of ideas and opinions Group skills Imaginative and creativity Knowledge and understanding of genres and styles Questioning Techniques Extra-Curricular Opportunities Personalised learning.
