Students can choose to study Drama for GCSE. They will have 5 lessons over a 2 week period. We follow the OCR exam board. The coursework is split into two components, each worth 30% of their overall mark — ‘Drama in the Making’ in which students devise their own 5 minute piece of Drama (Year 10) and ‘Page to Stage’ in which students perform a 10 minute extract from a play we have been studying (Year 11). At the end of Year11, students will have 10 hours to devise and perform a 10 minute exam piece which is performed in front of an external examiner.
