Drama

"A survey of 198 employers in the UK indicated, for graduates, being good at communicating, a team player, confident and analytical were all more important than having technical knowledge.  But this changed after two years in the job, when firms said knowledge was increasingly important.  The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) supported the findings". 
BBC News (30 July 2014) 

 

Drama is popular and vibrant at Haygrove School with pupils from Year 7 to Year 11 studying the subject as both a practical and an academic discipline. Lessons are designed to promote imagination and creativity within a structured framework. 

Drama is a life skill and a creative art form. It helps pupils develop their ability to use voice, movement, gesture and facial expression, in acting, mime, dance drama and improvisation. They can express and manage their thoughts and feelings – shared and experienced – while working in a safe and controlled environment. The development of these skills encourages self confidence and self awareness. It promotes the development of the individual in a group context: roles and ideas are negotiated, problems solved and decisions made together. 

The Drama curriculum at Key Stage 3 enables pupils to explore, develop and express ideas and concepts which will help them make sense of reality. Every pupil has the equivalent of one hour per week for Drama in Years 7 and 8. In Year 9, Music, Drama and Art operate a carousel where there are two lessons per week over a shorter period of time.

“Like theatre, drama in schools can unlock the use of imagination, intellect, empathy and courage. Through it, ideas, responses and feelings can be expressed and communicated. It carries the potential to challenge, to question and to bring about change”.
Jude Kelly (Theatre Director and founder of Metal)

 


Key Stage 4 Options

 

  1. GCSE Drama (Edexcel specification)

Course outline

Students choosing GCSE Drama must be prepared to attend rehearsals outside of normal school hours and ensure they maintain high levels of attendance at school  - this is vital for success in GCSE Drama.

 

"The most valuable asset a nation has is the creativity of its children" Alan Plater (playwrite)

"The arts are highly valued by the school, prized for the self-confidence

and esteem they engender and for the way in which they contribute to

 communication and positive behaviour."
