This is a two-year course, which is a natural progression from the GCSE Drama course.
Drama is an exciting, creative and challenging course which encourages you to develop as an independent learner with analytical awareness and critical and reflective thinking skills.
It offers students the opportunity to explore a practical art form in which ideas and meaning are communicated to an audience through choices of form, style and convention.
Students will create, perform and respond to drama, informed by their increasing theoretical knowledge so that students become adept at selecting the most effective means of expression.
The course involves taking part in devised and scripted performances and provides you with the opportunity to learn about stage lighting, sound, costume, props and set design as well as studying plays and playwrights from the perspective of an actor, designer and director.
You will also learn how to write about drama, and develop your powers of analysis to become an informed critic.
