The purpose of the Drama curriculum is to help develop our students into strong, creative and confident individuals who are able to work well both independently and as part of a team. It will challenge them to alter their perceptions of the world around them and encourages them to reflect on their own and the work of others. The safe environment created in the drama classroom will be a space where students are encouraged to express their opinions and learn to listen to those of others.
Drama is vital for communicating with others in school and in the wider world, and it is fundamental to learning in all curriculum subjects.
In studying drama, students develop skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing that they will need to participate in society and employment. Students learn to express themselves creatively and imaginatively and to communicate with others confidently and effectively.
The skills studied and developed in drama are key to the modern and professional world we live in. Due to the growth in the communication technology industry the need to be able to articulate and present your ideas with confidence across the world becomes more and more vital. Developing skills in presentation and self-confidence is now a key quality required in most, if not all, industries. Added to this, the creative arts industry is one of the UK’s greatest exports around the world.
