Drama and Theatre Studies A2 level at Clapton Girls' Academy

Course description

This qualification in drama and theatre has been designed to be a practical, engaging and creative specification for students to study. It will provide opportunities for students to examine drama and the work of others, to explore a range of drama as a practical art form, and to work independently to create their own drama performances making informed artistic choices. The qualification allows students to study drama and theatre in an academic setting, interrogating this art form and applying their knowledge and understanding to the process of creating and developing drama and theatre and to their own performance work.

Course content

A-level students will cover four different components over the two years of study. These are: practitioners in practice; exploring texts for performance; analysing performance; deconstructing texts for performance.

Entry requirements

It is useful to have taken GCSE Drama, but not essential.
