Drama fosters self-discipline, confidence and team work as well as developing skills in interpreting, negotiating, problem solving, decision making and evaluating. Drama enhances students’ artistic and creative abilities and gives them a better understanding of themselves and the world they live in. Students will use themes, issues and texts to examine a diverse range of social, political and cultural contexts. Drama is an inclusive subject where all students are given the opportunity to learn and develop in a safe and structured environment. There are many cross-curricular links explored in Drama lessons.

|Key Stage 3||
Throughout Key Stage Three, students develop their abilities in comprehension and communication. They will work in varying group sizes and learn to take risks with the development of their ideas. Students learn performance skills and how they can communicate meaning to an audience. They learn to analyse their work and the work of others. Assessment will take place each term and students will be assessed regularly on their communication, concentration, collaboration, creativity and characterisation as well as their acting ability in an end of term assessment. Homework will be in the form of line-learning, rehearsals, revising drama language, spelling tests and online quizzes that test the knowledge learnt in lessons.
|Key Stage 4||
Progression from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4 is made through building on and developing the use of Drama techniques previously learnt and exploring age appropriate issues and contexts.
C1 – Understanding Drama - worth 40% of the GCSE. To be assessed May of Year 11.
C2 – Devising Drama - worth 40% of the GCSE.
