Literacy rich subject


The Year 13 Drama course is a fun and engaging way to explore creativity and self expression through creation, performance and pushing the boundaries in theatre. We aim to provide a safe space to explore, challenge yourself and perform through various theatre forms.

Students will explore creativity and culture through studying and performing scripted works. Students will learn how to apply the drama components: elements, conventions, techniques, and technologies, into performance work within a range of opportunities. Students will be devising their own works and developing scripts. This course offers public performance assessments and opportunities throughout the year. There is also the option of directing theatre.
Students will encouraged to attend live theatre performances during the year. There is an out of class rehearsal commitment required as part of this course.
It is expected that students will develop skills in all areas but will complete between 8 and 14 credits for assessment. Not all skills taught will be assessed. This is a UE approved subject. You will need to ensure you have 14 Drama credits over the year for UE Drama.
