Curriculum | Faculty Drama

The drama room is located on the 4th floor. It is a large space that has a blackbox stage area and auditorium for an audience of 60. Drama plays a crucial role in developing social skills, expression and communication. Drama is a compulsory subject for year 7 and 8 and optional in year 9. We also are excited to offer IGCSE Drama and BTEC Performing Arts!

The IGCSE specification is diverse, practical and accessible to students of all abilities. Students are provided with in-depth training and opportunities to develop performance and theatre skills including set design, sound and lighting and textual analysis. This is a sound foundation to prepare for A Level Drama.

BTEC Performing Arts
For students with their sights set on a career in the performance industry, a BTEC in Performing Arts is a great choice. The practice-based courses aim to provide students with the relevant skills and knowledge that employers value, as well as the confidence to progress into a fulfilling, exciting career in a creative industry. At this point in time we offer BTEC Performing Arts for Acting and Musical Theatre.
