Students throughout each key stage work on improvisation skills and study published scripts.
Drama is an opportunity for all students to develop confidence and skills in speech, movement and language. Students will see a change in their levels of confidence and understanding of communication, all vital component parts of being able to function in the world that we live in today.
Issues will be explored relating to current affairs, relationships and texts and Drama will be the tool for learning. Performance and drama for an audience also figure in a packed curriculum. Pupils will work upon set texts and discover how the artistic intentions of a writer can be translated to action on stage and how performers, designers and directors work to a common goal.
There is in school an active G6 Drama Group and members of this group work together outside of normal lesson times and visit the theatre together enjoying professional performances. The school also produces and performs large scale productions on a regular basis the next already being planned and worked upon.
We do not set out to create professional actors or actresses but to support all students in their development as people and to foster an interest in Drama as an art form and vital part of our cultural heritage and lives today.
