For Parents and Carers
Type of subject: Creative, practical and academic
In the devised unit, students study the skills techniques and knowledge required to create and perform their own play. Students are set a thought-provoking stimulus; encouraged to research the themes and issues around that topic; and use theatre making techniques to produce a meaningful and skilfully executed performance.
The study of a set text is designed to enable students to analyse a play in a practical style. The texts are chosen by the exam board and we spend two years generating ideas about the meaning of the work, the symbols, social, historical, cultural and political context of the play as well as developing a directorial concept for the play.
Texts in practice is the acting unit of the course. Students study a full, contrasting text to the set text and develop performance skills in order to create a quality performance. This is assessed by a visiting examiner and you are welcome to watch the work. We regularly see live theatre and have had trips to Manchester, Bradford, Ralph Thorsby Theatre and have external practitioners visit and work with students.
How is the course assessed?
Component 1: Understanding Drama
Component 2: Devising Drama
Component 3: Texts in practice
This is externally marked by a visiting AQA examiner.
