Course Code: S0716 Course Length: One year for AS and two years for a full A Level Full Description:

This course takes a practical approach and you will learn, rehearse and perform in our specially designed drama studio. There is a strong focus on drama that you may have performed or seen in a theatre and we aim to give students a chance to perform in larger venues such as The Norwich Playhouse. We also hope to include work with visiting professional actors and directors as part of the course.

You will acquire a knowledge and understanding of the language of drama and theatre as well as to develop your performing and analytical skills. You will do this by studying plays from the point of view of a director, designer, performer and critic.

The course includes trips to see theatrical performances. These have included Emperor and Galilean at The National Theatre, Dr Faustus at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and Propeller Theatre’s Richard III at Norwich’s Theatre Royal.

If you wish to read Drama at university, we will encourage you to apply to join the National Youth Theatre, as an effective way of preparing for university auditions.

We expect students to be excellent team players, to have initiative, maturity and imagination and to appreciate that writing in detail about your thoughts and experiences during workshops is an essential part of developing your skills as a performer. A high level of attendance is also essential as you will be involved in group performances where students depend on each other’s support to succeed.

Assessment is through written examinations, practical work and can include technical skills such as sound and lighting as well as performances.

Drama and Theatre Studies can be taken with any other subjects, but students often choose to combine it with English, Media Studies or Film Studies.

Entry Requirements:

  • Five GCSEs at grades A*-C including English
  • You do not need to have studied Drama before, but if you have, you will need to have a GCSE at grade A*-C or equivalent.
