Drama and Theatre offers opportunities for students to use their creativity to express themselves in a physical, vocal and written format. Students will understand the processes of creating, making, performing and evaluating plays. This course will offer pupils the opportunity to study independently and in a group context.

The course is structured over the two years with 40% of the course being completed during the first year.

There will be a practical approach to the course and students will receive weekly tutorials to ensure they are meeting the expectations and demands of the course.

There are two set texts which the students will learn and their written responses will be in the form of four timed essays.
