We aim to make Drama a safe place; a place where learners can think freely within the realms of devising, performing, and evaluating drama.
We encourage all learners to explore and develop creative thinking; working collaboratively with others, developing communication skills and over time, gaining the confidence to take risks, master a range of drama skills both as a performer and a designer, whilst enjoying themselves and the process.
We want to provoke discussion and explore often sensitive topics in an environment which holds no judgement or prejudice through practical, verbal, and theoretical learning.
Drama should inspire our learners through the introduction/development of a range of forms and styles of drama: melodrama, naturalistic/non-naturalistic, verbatim theatre, and many theatre practitioners whose knowledge, skill and talents have helped to create the diverse curriculum we offer today.
We challenge preconceived ideas, encouraging learners to form their own opinions on the world in which we live. We provide them with the tools and knowledge to be able to justify, reason and to understand problems whilst broadening their own cultural capital.
