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.
