KS4 Specification - AQA

The Drama department consists of three staff all of whom are subject specialists with a range of experience in theatre, television and education. In Key Stage 3 students have one lesson of Drama per week. Key Stage 3 focuses on developing specific skills that are useful to the lifelong learner such as confidence building, communication and teamwork, plus we aim to inspire and engage students in a passion and interest in performance arts - from acting to design.

GCSE Drama is a diverse and exciting course. Students comment that they feel challenged yet supported in lessons and they are encouraged to experiment with their ideas and creativity. The department strongly believe that all students can succeed in Drama and staff ensure lessons are targeted to meet the specific needs and interests of all. 

A-level Theatre Studies offers students the chance to develop specific interests in performance including acting, design and directing. The course encourages students to consider the value of the arts in society and for them to consider literature, history, politics and psychology in an understanding of the importance of theatre today. Many students continue to study Theatre at university and have had success in a range of fields.

The department has two black box studio spaces, professional lighting rig and sound system. In addition, we also have the use of the School Hall with proscenium arch stage, digital projection and computerised sound system. Each year the department offers students the chance to be involved in a production and performers develop skills and an understanding of a range of theatrical styles. The department offers numerous opportunities for students to visit the theatre both locally and nationally. We have annual residential visits to London and have recently taken shows to the Edinburgh Festival receiving five star reviews.

It is a vibrant, forward thinking department where students and staff enjoy developing their learning together.
