In Drama, our curriculum intent is:
To build confidence, encourage creative thinking, and promote a positive learning experience while working with others. We foster a learning environment that promotes a safe place to experiment with theatre, developing knowledge, communication and teamwork, and giving students life skills for a successful future.

Many of our students leave us after sixth form and go on to study Drama and Performing Arts at Degree level. There are a number of universities which have an excellent reputation in this area, and this will be discussed with you during the course. We also have a number of students leave our school and go to performing arts/theatre schools to develop their skills in order to pursue an acting career.
Studying this subject at Key Stage 4 and 5 will help to develop your confidence in performing in front of your peers and other people. This element of the course will help to develop your confidence of public speaking and assist with future life events such as job interviews and presentations within professional roles.
