The GCSE Drama course provides opportunities to examine drama and the work of others, and to explore it as a practical art form. It allows students to study drama in an academic setting, interrogating this art form and applying their knowledge and understanding to the process of creating and developing drama and to their own performance work. We aim to develop creative, independent thinkers with skills in research, working with others, analysis, communication, time management, ICT, problem solving,
planning and organising.
Devising Drama: 30% Learners will research and explore a stimulus, work collaboratively & create their
