BARLBY HIGH SCHOOL IS PART OF

Drama

Barlby High School, Selby York. Part of the Hope Learning Trust, York.
Curriculum aim

The Drama curriculum at Barlby, whilst equipping students to perform with excellence, also focuses on helping students to build essential key skills. These skills (creative thinking and expression, empathy, communication, independent learning, leadership and working with others) help students to develop into young adults who will be increasingly effective in the modern world.

Key Stage 3 curriculum overview

The Drama course challenges students to consider other views and opinions about the world in which they live, exploring many social and global issues. This work is taught in a variety of ways using contemporary texts, devised work and creative games and exercises. The lessons strive to stretch and strengthen the physical and vocal capabilities of our students, as well as deepening their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of theatre and performance.

GCSE Drama

At Key Stage 4, students undertake the AQA GCSE Drama course. The course aims to provide students with a solid foundation in creative, practical and performance skills. Students will develop their knowledge and understanding of style, genre and social context and have numerous opportunities to attend live theatre events in the UK. The subject content for GCSE Drama is divided into three components:

  1. UNDERSTANDING DRAMA – This component assesses student’s knowledge and understanding of drama and theatre, the study of one set play from a choice of six and analysis and evaluation of the work of live theatre makers. It is assessed through a written exam.
  2. DEVISING DRAMA – This practical component will guide students through the process of creating devised drama, a performance of devised drama and analysis and evaluation of their own work.
  3. TEXTS IN PRACTICE – This practical component will assess student’s contribution to the performance of two extracts from one play for an external examiner.

With the focus on working imaginatively, collaborating creatively and communicating effectively, GCSE Drama provides a solid foundation for further Drama studies and vocational opportunities.
