Year 11 Drama

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Veale

Year 11 Drama is a full year course that will build literacy, performance skills and confidence. Students will use poetry, world events and history to inspire their performances throughout the year. Drama is a collaborative subject, so students must be prepared to work with others. There are 3 internal assessments and one external. The internals focus on developing performance skills and theoretical knowledge of theatre. Students will attend a live theatre production, which will inform the external. Drama is a lot of fun, but a lot of hard work!
