Drama and Theatre Studies - AS / A Level at St Alban's Catholic High School
A Level Drama and Theatre will be assessed through a combination of a 40% written exam
and 60% non-examined assessment. The course is both lively and stimulating. It is hard
work but great fun and you will quickly become part of a very strong and supportive
team. We look at theatre production and theatre practitioners in a very ‘hands on’ practical
way. You can study either performance or production design as your main emphasis –
both carry equal weighting. If you like working closely with others, as part of a team and
are prepared to give up your own time to rehearse for examined performances and have
a genuine love and interest in theatre then this is the course for you!
Students can go on to study drama at university. Jobs directly related to an A Level or

drama teacher, dramatherapist, television production assistant, radio presenter, theatre
director. Drama and Theatre is also useful for a range of other jobs, such as youth &
community worker, personnel manager, social worker, journalist, marketing manager
or charities administrator.
