Drama

HeaderBar-HASN Options

“All the world’s a stage...”  (As You Like It, William Shakespeare)

Come and explore your world on the HASN Stage!

Studying Drama at GCSE develops and extends the work you have done at Key Stage 3 and combines practical performance, exploration of plays and issues through workshops and a written examination.

You will work independently, in small groups and as part of the whole class both in lessons and at additional after school rehearsals. You will need to keep a weekly log of the work completed in practical sessions so that you can use these notes when revising for your examination.

You will also be given the opportunity to watch live theatre performed by professional actors and will be required to complete an examination question on the live theatre you have seen.

Assessment:

We study the WJEC (Eduqas) specification.
Component 1 – (40%) Devising Theatre

Devised performance using either an influential practitioners techniques or the techniques of a specific genre of theatre, which is assessed by your teachers.

Component 2 – (20%) Performing From a Text

Performance of two extracts from the same performance text, assessed by a visiting examiner.

Component 3 – (40%) Interpreting Theatre

A written examination of two sections; Section A has questions on a set text and Section B is one question requiring you to analyse and evaluate a live theatre production you have seen.

How can Drama help me in the future?

Having a Drama GCSE shows employers you are confident, creative and able to express yourself fluently. These qualities are particularly well respected in the following fields: teaching, law, journalism, media and business. It also prepares you for any further study in the Performing Arts.
