Welcome to Drama

Performing Arts means practically exploring performance methods and techniques, as well as developing analytical skills through the evaluation of live and recorded performance work.


In every one of our academies a vast number of after- academy enrichment activities take place each week. Students are provided with opportunities to add depth to their learning and develop personal skills through a rich and varied enrichment programme.

Students will have the chance to enjoy new experiences and consolidate their timetabled learning through this programme. Further detailed information on the opportunities available to students can be found in the academy’s Enrichment Brochure by clicking HERE

Many students enjoy attending drama as part of the school’s enrichment programme. Performances have included full school productions of Alice in Wonderland, Bugsy Malone and Our Day Out. The BTEC Performing Arts students plan, prepare and perform in a production for their unit 2. This year the theme was Northern Grit – 1980s in the North. Our Y7/8 drama group contribute to regular performances throughout the year including our Christmas Carol Concert. We have recently introduced a Year 8 Gifted and Talented enrichment to our programme of sessions which also includes a KS4 supportive enrichment opportunity on a Thursday.
