Teacher Mrs S. Hanna
In Drama we study the CCEA specification.
You don’t have to have any previous experience of Drama in order to study it at GCSE Level.
This subject will develop your confidence in working with others and in public speaking which will have a positive impact on your other subjects when you have to do group work or give presentations.
The key skills which you will develop through GCSE Drama include creativity, working with others, problem-solving, communication, negotiation, self-discipline, time-management, setting deadlines and meeting targets. Drama students should learn to understand the practical components of the theatre and develop the ability to understand and respond to a wide range of dramatic productions. The study of Drama at GCSE Level should also help to develop a lifelong interest in the theatre as there are many opportunities to visit the theatre both locally and further afield.
