Introduction

Drama at George Spencer Academy is an exciting and vibrant department. Students across all age ranges are challenged by practical performance and theoretical concepts. Drama is much more than 'being an actor', students explore, develop, represent, present and evaluate. They use creative imagination, sensitivity and intelligence in the dramatic communications of thoughts, feeling and ideas from a range of perspectives.

 

The department provides students with a range of experiences through educational drama. The schemes of learning are developed to supply students with a skills based learning programme which explores issues and broad topics in order to develop student's opinions and attitudes. We are focused on teaching and learning which not only develops "dramatic and culture education" but also asks students to reflect on their attitudes, values and human qualities. The department also enjoys the promotion of inclusion and strong team work skills.
