During the course students will work as a theatre company on term long projects that will encourage them to become more confident performers through the rehearsal and practical of key acting skills. Students will complete two mandatory units and four further units.

Students will be asked to go to the theatre in order to expand their understanding of theatre. The Drama Department organises several theatre experiences for students – performances and workshops in school as well as theatre trips.
