Drama Intent

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

The intent of our drama curriculum reflects the schools’ values: perseverance, character, hope.

  • To develop safe, supportive and inclusive classroom environments which allows students to take risks, learn from mistakes and build hope and aspirations for the future.3
  • To promote the importance of showing perseverance; becoming resilient and independent learners who can rise to individual challenges allowing them to build their own character and hope.
  • To encourage students to creatively and practically explore various stimuli using performance skills which focus upon a range of cultural, moral and spiritual issues.
  • To inspire students to successfully develop their character working both independently and collaboratively with their peers to foster confidence in their own ability developing.4
  • To encourage students to embrace new opportunities, allowing them to recognise the importance of participation in a wide range of activities, preparing them for life beyond education.
  • To nurture academic habits such as critical analysis, self-reflection and peer assessment whilst developing original material. The development of these skills are relevant and applicable to wider academic subjects and life beyond education.6
  • Through evaluation and critical analysis we provide a foundation for students to secure their knowledge within the subject alongside developing their literacy and numeracy skills which can be applied across the wider curriculum.
