At Trinity we believe that everyone should have the opportunity for personal growth through the arts. We acknowledge and celebrate the arts throughout the academic year and provide a framework for artistic teaching and effective learning.
Drama is an energetic, vibrant and growing department offering exciting creative and performance opportunities for all pupils at Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and A Level. Our aim is to Realise the students' artistic intentions and support their development within the subject. We provide these for our students so they can build their own personal artistic responses and be creative in a supportive environment.
All students begin their creative journey in the department at Year 7 by actively participating in practical and theoretical lessons which range from cultural, historical and social exploration of topics from Shakespeare to 21 Century play text. Students’ progressive learning of a wide range of skills and techniques continue to be developed in Years 8 and 9. All students develop their performance skills during the term where they share their work with their peers through performance assessments in our Theatre space. Students have the opportunity to progress into GCSE and A Level.
Our Drama programme also includes our vast extra-curricular opportunities to get involved with a variety of activities which include our Whole School Musicals.
