At KS3 we aim to introduce students to a range of topics and issues that stimulate and educate. Students explore many different topics such as Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Kafka’s Metamorphosis, Greek Theatre, and real life issue based stories such as bullying where students explore action and consequence. Within each scheme of work students are introduced to a full range of drama techniques such as Physical theatre, Mime and the conventions which students develop through their 2 years of KS3.
At year 9 level, students build on the foundations of year 7 and 8. They work on a variety of skills sets, both academic and practical. New and exciting schemes of work have been written by the teaching staff including devising, Dennis Kelly’s DNA and an in-depth empathetic exploration into the Holocaust.
