In years 9, 10 and 11 students can opt to follow AQA GCSE Drama. During the course they examine a range of Drama and Theatre from a performance perspective. Plays are deconstructed, practically explored and performed in the evening to audiences of parents and friends. Recently performed texts include, ‘Animal Farm’, ‘Blue Remembered Hills’, ‘The Crucible’ and ‘Ashputtel’. Students also have the opportunity to perform original devised work. Students also visit the professional theatre and study the production scene from a performance, design and technical perspective. Having completed practical performance work students also sit a written examination on their study of Drama and Theatre. Practical application of acting as well as technical and design skills form the skills aspects of the course.
