Drama KS3 Drama

Drama is an essential area of the school curriculum and students receive 1 lesson per week at Key Stage 3, during which they build and develop a wide range of life skills alongside theatre skills.  Team work, communication, confidence, creativity, self-expression, empathy and presentational skills to name a few! Throughout KS3 we intend to introduce students to a wide range of drama techniques and  performance styles and give them an overview of theatre history. Students also learn about the technical and design aspects of drama and the theatre. We aim to promote the idea of Theatre Makers in all disciplines alongside performance skills.
