Drama

Welcome to the Drama Department


Drama is an energetic, engaging and interesting subject which allows you to develop your practical and academic skills equally. Studying Drama encourages pupils to think about the world and the society in which we live and their place in it. It is a current and topical course.

  • Drama helps pupils to:
  • Communicate effectively
  • Work collaboratively
  • Empathise
  • Express opinions
  • Develop problem solving skills

Key Stage 3

New Year 7 Curriculum

The new Year 7 curriculum sees the introduction of 'The Lion King' as a topic in collaboration with The Music and Art Departments. We will be working together to produce extracts from 'The Lion King' using song, performance and masks.


At KS3 pupils are encouraged to explore all areas of Drama creating their own work as well as performing the work of famous practitioners including Shakespeare and Brecht. KS3 gives pupils a grounding for GCSE Drama.
