The purpose of the drama curriculum is to develop a wide range of knowledge and skills within drama working to professional industry standards. To ensure students can explore a variety of topics, styles, issues and characters working cooperatively with their peers. They should use resilience during their rehearsal time, as well as teamwork and problem solving skills, allowing them to devise their own theatre or bring scripted plays to life. They will develop opinions on various topics through the use of spoken language skills and build the confidence and creativity to express these through the use of drama and performance. Drama embeds verbal use of self and peer feedback where students can demonstrate how to improve a performance to make it further engaging for an audience.
