The GCSE Drama course is for you if you have enjoyed the drama you have done at Key Stage 3 and you want to develop your drama skills.

Why should I study this course?

GCSE Drama gives you the opportunity to develop your understanding of various drama techniques. You will work in groups exploring various themes, skills, techniques and practitioners.

GCSE Drama will prepare you for any job or course you want to progress to after school. It will help you with your communication and presentation skills.

If you are a hardworking and enthusiastic person who is keen to develop their acting and technical skills then GCSE Drama is the course for you!

What will I learn?

There are practical and written assessments so you shouldn’t choose it if you are not prepared to do some written work. There is also an expectation that you will do some written tasks at home and there will be occasions when you will need to attend rehearsals at lunch and after school. You need to be prepared to perform in front of an audience.
