All students in Key stage 3 are taught drama in mixed ability form groups. We provide a spiral curriculum that develops students’ understanding of key skills. As students move through the year groups there is a complexity in the way the skills are applied.

Each year group will study a theme along with key skills:

Year 7: Scrapbook and News

Year 8: Run away and levels of tension

Year 9: Steven Lawrence and Stimulus

Drama lessons provide the students with the core skills necessary to put on a performance and shape drama. However, in key stage 3 there is an enhanced foci on: team work, collaboration and presentation techniques. Each of these qualities are valuable lifelong learning skills that benefit young people as they move from school to employment.
