Drama Curriculum Intent Statement

Our intent is to nurture an enjoyment and understanding of Drama through practical experience and to develop both subject specific and transferrable skills that empower students. We focus on encouraging teamwork, creativity, reflection and communication. We aim to engage students and build confidence in a safe and inclusive environment.

 

Drama Vision

Drama should inspire students to develop inquisitive minds and teach them how to explore life through Art. It should develop their understanding of the function of Drama in civilisation and equip them for life with the necessary skills to become reflective, responsible adults with the ability to make a positive contribution to society.

 

Drama Purpose

Studying Drama should be a creative, collaborative and transformative experience. Through Drama we can explore the world around us, understand the ideas and opinions of others, learn how to discuss, resolve, compromise, and empathise. Drama allows us to explore alternatives, to question ideas, to reflect on the past and to seek answers. Through studying Drama students learn to communicate ideas, explore social issues and moral dilemmas, and express their own thoughts and opinions. The practical skills learnt in Drama help students to grow in confidence and command an audience.

 

Drama also offers opportunities for development in many areas and can support progression to a wide range of subjects and career paths as it develops transferrable skills. These include cognitive skills such as problem solving, decision making and critical thinking; interpersonal skills such as active listening, communication, relationship building, trust, teamwork, intercultural sensitivity, self-presentation, social influence, conflict resolution, negotiation and collaborative problem solving; and intrapersonal skills such as adaptability, working with different personalities, self-management, working autonomously, self-motivation, self-monitoring.

 

We believe that students should be given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of Drama activities both in and outside the classroom. Taking part in a production is a valuable and rewarding experience and gives students a sense of achievement. The camaraderie, mutual support and inclusiveness that comes from being in a theatrical team, whether on stage or backstage is positive and builds confidence. We hope that all our students enjoy Drama and are inspired by the curriculum.
