Expressive Arts - Performing Arts/Drama

We believe that students deserve a broad and ambitious Drama curriculum, rich in skills and knowledge, which immerses students in a range of styles. The curriculum will encourage students to become confident and independent thinkers, who will be able to create original work and critically analyse professional and non-professional repertoire. Students will have an appreciation of their own work and that of others, always demonstrating respect and empathy.

Our Drama curriculum will give students the opportunity to:

  • develop creativity through understanding the benefits of participation in the arts, performance and creativity during their school journey;
  • develop co-operation & collaboration;
  • develop confidence in communication through developing vocal and physical skills;
  • explore social issues though drama to develop tolerance and understanding;
  • be exposed to different peoples’ perspectives and emotions on issues and events;
  • be exposed to and use subject specific vocabulary effectively;
  • study the history and influence of different practitioners on drama;
  • develop an understanding of how to apply and analyse different stylistic qualities such as Naturalism, Physical theatre, Epic theatre and Surrealism;
  • develop an ability to evaluate their own and others’ work.
