Babington House School Curriculum

Senior

Co-ed aged 11 - 16



Drama

At Key Stages 1 to 3 Drama has a major role to play in enhancing the delivery of a range of cross-curricular subjects, as well as in developing important creative and team working skills. Drama is also important in helping to build confidence and develop social skills. In the Senior School, Drama lessons in years 7 to 9 develop the following skills:

  • Group working
  • Physical theatre
  • Improvising and devising
  • Role play
  • Scripted work and script creation
  • Exploring issues and genres
  • Responding to a stimulus

At GCSE, pupils will be challenged to further develop their creative skills, work as part of a team to achieve exciting and engaging performances, and develop verbal and written evaluation skills.

KS4 students follow the Edexcel specification which consists of three units. Units 1 and 2 are coursework units which have both practical and written elements, whilst Unit 3 culminates in an exam performance which is marked by an external examiner.

  1. Drama  Exploration
  2. Exploring Play Texts
  3. Final examined performance

Every year Babington House presents a major school production which gives students the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of a performance - from stage design to lighting, back stage management to make up. This is a much anticipated event which endeavours to involve as many pupils as possible.
