Head of the Drama Department: Mr Walsh
Our Drama and Theatre curriculum is designed to provide students with practical skills that engage creative and innovative thinking. Through the subjects of Drama, students are able to build a variety of positive skills, including confidence, communication skills and problem solving. It provides learners with a wide variety of transferable skills and career paths that link closely with other curriculum areas and employers. This practical subject allows students to express themselves in an artistic and creative way whilst studying in an academic environment. The students are inspired to develop a passion for the arts through practical and theoretical exploration of theatre and literature.
Our curriculum encourages success for all students, through our inclusive approach to learning. As this subject requires a combination of practical and written communication, it effectively suits the needs of all learners, with a curriculum that enthuses creativity through a passion of the performing arts. This exciting subject drives students to use their best gifts through a pathway of success, to achieve their full potential to prove that we are all made for greatness.
In addition to our exciting and practical curriculum we also have lots of extra curricular projects for students to get involved with beyond lesson time. Opportunities are further enhanced through booster sessions, visiting artists, trips and events.
