We've never found any weapons or drugs during our random searches - the fact that we actually conduct these searches helps to keep it this way. https://t.co/KaN1q07TNM

From this week we are doubling the number of random searches of students’ bags, jackets and lockers. It’s crucial we keep up an active and visible deterrent so students don’t make daft decisions and bring in something which would endanger our community.

Drama

Drama is taught on a carousel in Year 7/8 with students studying Drama for half of the school year. It is available as an options subject in Year 9. We also teach it at GCSE and A level.

Our Key Stage 3 schemes of work introduce students to the skills and techniques needed in order to explore character, theme and issue.

  • Year 7- students begin to learn Dramatic techniques and apply them to an exploration of the following topics: Narration, Silent Movies, Macbeth and Barry the Bully.
  • Year 8- students enhance their existing skills and extend them through a study of scripted and non-scripted work, including Romeo and Juliet, The Stones and Physical Theatre.
  • Year 9- Students will have Drama twice a week for the whole year. Students will explore a variety of schemes whilst developing existing Dramatic abilities and learning

At this stage, we follow the new national curriculum which can be found here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum

At Key Stage 4, we follow the GCSE Edexcel exam board. For the GCSE, students complete three components:

  • Component 1- students devise an original performance and complete a portfolio detailing the process.
  • Component 2- students perform an extract from a play along with a monologue/duologue to a visiting examiner.
  • Component 3- a written exam where students get the chance to analyse live performance as well as explain how they would perform key roles from a set text.

Please click on the following link to access the specification which includes a detailed overview of the two year course- https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualifications/edexcel-gcses/drama-2016.html

For KS5, students follow the Edexcel A level course. This course comprises of three components:

  • Component 1- Students will devise an original performance, using an original performance text as their stimulus. They will complete a written portfolio to analyse the creative process.
  • Component 2- Students will perform a group play and a monologue/duologue to a visiting examiner.
  • Component 3- a written exam where students get the chance to analyse live performance as well as explain how they would perform key roles from a set text.
