Curriculum Intent Statement:
Students at Thorpe St Andrew School deserve an exciting, challenging and fun drama curriculum in which practical performance skills are developed and key technical knowledge is learnt. The curriculum encourages students to engage critically and creatively with a range of texts and dramatic stimuli and develop an appreciation of the crucial role of drama and the arts to wider society.
The skills learnt in drama lessons apply to so much more than the subject itself and are critical assets in the adaptable and responsive workforce of tomorrow. We understand that we are not teaching students to become successful actors but rather to become successful individuals who are able to empathise with others, work collaboratively and creatively solve problems and overcome challenges.
In drama, we learn through shared experience and aim to create memorable lessons which students will recall throughout their time at school and remember fondly for many years to come.
