Entry Requirements

An attainment 8 score of 5.5 as well as a Grade 5 in English Literature. Students will preferably have a Grade 6 in Drama or Merit in equivalent vocational subject, otherwise potential candidates will be asked to complete an audition or design task depending on their chosen specialism.

Why choose A-level Drama and Theatre?

Our course inspires students to become independent theatre makers with the skills they need to go on to higher education, whether that is to study a course in drama and theatre or another subject.

A practical focus

We want students to have an inspiring experience of A-level Drama and Theatre. This course emphasises practical creativity alongside research and theoretical understanding. Students learn through experience, seeing theatre and making theatre for themselves. Students are introduced to a wide range of theatrical styles and contexts as they explore plays practically, devise and work on performances.

Students choose to develop as a:

• performer

• designer (lighting, sound, set, costume, puppets)

• director

• combination of these.

Whichever option they choose, students will gain many invaluable skills, both theatrical and transferable, to expand their horizons.

Transferable skills

Students of Drama and Theatre develop skills that are not just essential for drama but applicable to a wide range of higher education subjects and in the workplace. This specification refines students' collaborative skills, their analytical thinking and their approach to research.

Students grow in confidence and maturity as they successfully realise their own ideas. They learn to evaluate objectively and develop a sound appreciation of the influences that cultural and social contexts can have on decision making.

Whatever the future holds, students of A-level Drama and Theatre emerge with a toolkit of transferable skills preparing them for their next steps.
