Drama (1 lesson per week)
Drama is a popular subject at KS3. Students are encouraged to experiment with devising techniques and create original work. The emphasis is always on engaging an audience through dramatic forms and structures. From the start of Year 7, students are introduced to key drama techniques that will help them to become focused performers at GCSE level. Some of the techniques explored include mime, dramatic asides, script study and theatre staging.
Taught in the school's specially adapted drama studio, students take pride in their work, develop an ability to both peer and self-evaluate, and set targets. Drama students at Cherry are always keen to perform their dramatic pieces.
