DRAMA AND THEATRE STUDIES at Langley Grammar School

Course description

Drama and Theatre Studies is an exciting and diverse course; it is a practical, intellectual and artistic subject. The AQA Drama and Theatre Studies course combines the activities of exploring plays, creating theatre, the performing of plays, the analysis of theatre and the critical evaluation of all these elements. Students completing the course successfully will have a thorough understanding of drama and theatre, highly toned analytical and creative skills and an ability to communicate effectively with others. The skills gained from this course provide excellent support to many other subjects particularly those where evaluation and analysis is fundamental.

Entry requirements

The course builds on the knowledge and skills attained at GCSE. Students may take it without prior study provided they have a real commitment to, and keen interest in the subject. We encourage students to approach us to discuss the course in greater detail, as well as the particular individual practical skills they would be interested in developing throughout the course. (Design skills for AS and A2 include Costume, Lighting, Mask, Makeup, Set/Props, Sound).
