Drama Curriculum

  • Secondary students in drama

Drama at Key Stage Three builds on the creative learning that children have explored previously and is part of the arts-rich curriculum at NAIS. 

Students will consolidate their understanding of dramatic explorative strategies (such as narration, tableaux and cross-cutting) and link these further to various mediums of drama (such as script, movement, voice, use of props and lighting.)

Students will also explore different styles of Drama developing their understanding of the rich history of the subject as well as the various cultural conventions that have been inspired by this art form.

Drama at Key Stage Three continues to be a cross-curricular investigation and it will build on the various ‘spoken language’ skills taught in English, where children have the opportunity to improvise, devise and script original drama with an increased understanding of the purpose and the audience of their work.

Shakespeare and the conventions of Elizabethan Theatre, are a key element of the curriculum and our students will have the chance to experiment with his work, building to a scene study or performance.

By the end of Year 9, students are prepared for the demands of the IGCSE Drama syllabus and have sound knowledge in how to make dramatic choices that can shape successful and exciting performances as well as an understanding of how Drama can influence both culture and society.
