Stamford School


 dramaStudents taking Drama at GCSE can expect a course which is varied and stimulating as well as challenging. The syllabus tests a number of skills: besides acting ability students must demonstrate that they can research a role or topic, work well in a group, manage their time effectively, reflect upon and evaluate their own work and that of others, and analyse live productions. Because the course is so varied no two lessons are the same and homework will be similarly diverse – writing up practical work, researching a character, learning lines, finding props and costumes, developing ideas, and so on. Drama is not an easy GCSE, but it is extremely rewarding and students can expect to gain much in terms of self-confidence and teamwork skills, as well as developing their dramatic ability and understanding of theatre and performance.
