Drama GCSE at Shenley Brook End School

Course description

Edexcel Drama is an option at year 10. Those students who opt to follow the course through to year 11 will cover skills attained at KS3 in more depth, and will then progress to more skills and demanding areas of presentation - including solo work and performance in different types of spaces. The course is geared around Edexcel's examination syllabus, so students are constantly working to improve their acting, devising and evaluation skills. There is also a written component to the course where students are expected to reflect on their practical work through a documented response.
