Key Stage 3

The weekly Drama session in the KS3 coursework will have students develop their performing skills as they interact with a variety of dramatic themes and theatric styles and genres such as Naturalism, Silent Movies, Melodrama, and Storytelling as well as Greek Chorus and Mask work. Key focus areas such as Characterization and Team Work will be examined in a confidence-building manner to nurture their empathetic and respectful understanding.


With a strong focus on enhancing the student’s individual performance work, the GCSE Drama coursework is based on the Eduqas syllabus. Over the 2 years of study, the students will continue to develop their understanding of theatre and dramatic expression to a very deep level. This will cover a wide range of aspects such as the influence of practitioners and how to utilize these influences to shape and define their own performances. Their ability to interpret scripts and stimuli will put to the test during the coursework. Students will enjoy the opportunity to study plays in live performances and to express their developed skills in practical and written exams. This process will extensively develop their creativity, self-confidence, and communication skills.


The BTEC Level-2 Tech Award in Performing Arts gives students the opportunity to express their knowledge and technical dramatic skills with practical coursework. They will take an in-depth analytical examination of the various roles within theatre – actor, director, writer, and designer -, as well as the various styles such as Physical, Verbatim, and Naturalism Theatre. The coursework will also foster a deeper understanding of the performing arts from the perspective of first-hand experiences. With the BTEC course is the equivalent of one GCSE and gives students the practical experience of what life in the theatrical arts will be like.


Students will follow the Eduqas syllabus in the A-Level Drama & Theatre, and over the course of 2-years, they will be tested on their creativity as they are examined in 3 performance pieces. They will display their skills as either Actor or Designer as they interpret the chosen course texts. They will explore the styles and approaches to the various performance pieces from practitioners and companies. With a final exam in both written format and practical format, the students will display their developed skills in the theoretical and practical presentation of the performing Arts.

  • What are Drama Education Teaching Resources?

    Drama education teaching resources consist of various programs, activities and materials used to assist students with learning about theatre. For drama teachers, these resources may include (A Level, GCSE, KS3 and BTEC courses); activity packs to use during drama lessons; pantomime scripts from different eras/genres specifically written for various age groups/skill levels; pantomime scripts from pantomime performances from past decades/genres suitable for particular age/skill groups as well as guidance for planning an effective lesson (including step-by-step tutorials for creating plays), assessment/evaluation techniques as well as guidance regarding assessment/evaluation techniques.

    Lesson plans are essential elements in any educational setting; these should be tailored specifically to each lesson based on what's being taught so as to ensure students make more progress over the term/year, etc… Additionally there is literature such as A Midsummer Night's Dream which makes an excellent way of introducing classic Shakespeare works into modern performances (just be sure they all understand all hidden contexts!). Good lesson plans are especially essential when trying out something new so make sure everyone understands exactly what to expect!

    Conclusion - Drama Education Teaching Resources don't have an exact solution, but teachers do have plenty of tools at their disposal that may enhance work practices through game plays/activities or literature studies… Spending some time to find resources that meet individual student and teacher needs will hopefully pay dividends through increased engagement levels - giving both peace of mind along the way!
