Students will primarily be looking at basic drama skills from the onset of the curriculum to enable development in preparation for the GCSE course in Key Stage 4. 

Following on from this, students will then develop their understanding of varying stage performances and genres.  This will give a greater understanding and insight of the production and performance industry.

Subsequently, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their practical and theoretic skills by way of contributing towards a performance; understanding the importance of effective role play and production.
