COMMITTED, EXPERIENCED AND QUALIFIED STAFF WITH A GREAT TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS.

 

WHAT YOU STUDY

The practical units provide you with the challenge of producing a diverse range of performance work. The practical Unit 2 involves the presentation of an extract from a play. At A2, you create and present a piece of devised drama based on a specific genre of theatre. There is a set text module at both AS and A2, and these units include prescribed plays from Greek drama to the work of contemporary writers. You are also required to respond critically to live theatre seen during the AS course. At A2, the synoptic module tests the student’s ability to analyse and comment on an ‘unseen’ extract from a further play studied during the course.

 

HOW YOU STUDY

Drama and Theatre Studies at Hagley is a rigorous academic and practical discipline. Writing and analytical skills are developed along with a sophisticated level of production and performance techniques. The practical modules are based on group presentations; therefore, the ability to work as part of a team is an essential requirement for success in this subject. Whilst Drama and Theatre Studies is clearly demanding, it has also proved to be an immensely rewarding and successful course. Indeed, the last Ofsted report noticed that students at Hagley are able to make ‘significant progress’ at AS and A-level in terms of ‘building on the good drama skills acquired at GCSE’.
