Drama and Theatre Studies A Level at Chipping Campden School
Drama and Theatre offers both a challenging and practically rigorous course, suitable for students with an avid curiosity about all aspects of drama and threatre.
The first component in this full two year course requires students to participate in the creation, development and performance of a piece of theatre based on a reinterpretation of an extract from a text chosen from a supplied list. The piece must be developed using the methods of a theatre practitioner or theatre company; a creative log must also be produced. Component two is assessed by a visiting examiner and requires that students devise two pieces of theatre based upon a set stimulus and again, using the methods of either a theatre company or practitioner. An evaluation report must be produced after the examination. The final component is assessed through a written "open book" examination. Questions are based upon the study of three set texts, studied and explored practically throughout the course.
Grade B or above in GCSE Drama is preferred, plus grade C or above in GCSE English.
