Head of Department: 

Mrs Alice Rebbettes 

Department aims: 

Taught on a half term rotation with Music, the Drama department aims to provide each student with a broad experience of the subject at key stage 3, giving students the opportunity to experience a range of different performance techniques, styles and explorative strategies whilst using a diverse selection of stimuli. All lessons will have a clear focus on teamwork, developing leadership skills and building confidence. At GCSE the Drama department aims to build upon students’ previous knowledge and go into more depth when exploring the work of specific practitioners and technical elements, as well as developing confidence in exploring and performing texts and evaluating live performance. We aim to encourage as many pupils as possible to take part in extracurricular Drama and to experience live theatre.
