Head of Department Guidance

As senior Drama students, it is expected that all students on the course will attend workshops and either Fulston Youth Theatre on a weekly basis or arrange regular rehearsals with fellow actors to continue to improve and refine skills and performances. All Drama students should take part in a range of performances throughout the year including recital evenings and theatre productions.

Students must dedicate sufficient time to learning lines, practicing their performances and meeting with their group members on a regular basis. It is vital they arrange regular rehearsals with actors to ensure they are prepared for the examination day.

Students should seek help from Mrs Marchant where needed, who can be found in the Performing Arts block/Studio.

KS4 Enrichment Sessions are available for students to attend at lunchtimes throughout the year.
