Year 13 Drama

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Veale

In Year 13 Drama students continue to build literacy, performance skills and confidence. Students will use drama scripts, 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!
