The KS3 scheme of work covers a range of topics, exploring important personal and social issues and using historical and contemporary texts as stimuli.


KS4 pupils get the opportunity to develop performance skills to a higher level whilst continuing to explore relevant and diverse themes and texts. They participate in drama workshops, and watch performances by professionals in school and in theatre venues.


All drama lessons are taught from a purpose built drama studio and shows are performed in our recently refurbished theatre. which has a state of the art sound and lighting system.


All pupils can access extracurricular drama activities such as cross curricular drama workshops, drama club or rehearsals for the annual school musical, which this year is “Little Shop of Horrors”.


We strive to give all pupils a chance to enjoy the many benefits of participating in drama and to showcase their talent.


KS4 pupils currently follow a dual course: all pupils completing Performing Arts BTEC level 1/2 Tec, some pupils additionally completing AQA GCSE Drama course.

Drama Department Vision

Through Drama, pupils are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone and develop their

 interpersonal skills whilst developing their skills as independent learners. This will lead to creative

 performance work and increased cultural appreciation. The Drama curriculum supports the wider school

 curriculum by developing oracy, problem solving and evaluation skills to a high level. The most successful

 learners will become leaders as well as being able to explore complex issues, generate thought

provoking work and evaluate work in detail.
