Drama and Theatre Studies at Toot Hill School

Course description

Year 1 – AS Level:

Unit 1: Exploration of Drama: Students will practically explore two contrasting play texts and complete exploration notes. Candidates experience live theatre and record their responses to it.

Unit 2: Theatre in Performance: Students take part in an externally examined production of a published play text. In addition, candidates produce a monologue or duologue for external assessment.

Year 2 - A2 Level:

Unit 3: Exploration of Dramatic Performance: Students are required to produce an original piece of theatre to be performed to a live audience. The process involves creating a portfolio of exploration notes which are internally assessed. Unit 4: Theatre in context: This unit takes the form of a 2.5 hour written exam. Students are required to develop ideas from the point of view of a director, working on their interpretation and rehearsal process of a set text. Candidates will also produce a response to a live piece of theatre, comparing the production to the play’s original performance.
