The Drama curriculum at Barlby, whilst equipping students to perform with excellence, also focuses on helping students to build essential key skills. These skills (creative thinking and expression, empathy, communication, independent learning, leadership and working with others) help students to develop into young adults who will be increasingly effective in the modern world.
The Drama course challenges students to consider other views and opinions about the world in which they live, exploring many social and global issues. This work is taught in a variety of ways using contemporary texts, devised work and creative games and exercises. The lessons strive to stretch and strengthen the physical and vocal capabilities of our students, as well as deepening their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of theatre and performance.
At Key Stage 4, students undertake the AQA GCSE Drama course. The course aims to provide students with a solid foundation in creative, practical and performance skills. Students will develop their knowledge and understanding of style, genre and social context and have numerous opportunities to attend live theatre events in the UK. The subject content for GCSE Drama is divided into three components:
With the focus on working imaginatively, collaborating creatively and communicating effectively, GCSE Drama provides a solid foundation for further Drama studies and vocational opportunities.
