We study Drama to create well-rounded, independent and imaginative individuals. Through exploring and developing a range of theatrical skills, students are able to become creative problem solvers and self-confident performers. Whilst creating characters and performances we encourage emotional and intellectual growth as our students begin to understand how people from different backgrounds respond to life’s challenges; thus preparing them for critical events which may happen within the future. Drama also helps us to make sense of the world around us, as we engage with a range of societal issues; exploring how historical events and political decisions can have an impact upon the lives of individuals within society. Through analysing dramatic techniques students become open-minded critical thinkers who are equipped to express themselves.
We embrace the differences of all individuals, therefore our students work within an inclusive and welcoming environment. We create work which has a clear purpose and highlights moral perspectives that are pertinent and significant to our students. Through creating and analysing drama, we engage with themes that are culturally relevant and encourage students to embrace their place within society.
