The Drama department at Greenshaw offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, fostering a sense of enjoyment. Drama enables students to develop their communication skills, self esteem and confidence. It is a powerful learning medium which prepares students for life beyond the classroom.
Drama gives pupils the opportunity to develop practical, artistic, technical, administrative and recreational skills within a communal framework. This occurs through the provision of appropriate guidance and resources in a wide range of different areas. The study of Drama encourages pupils to develop and refine artistic, aesthetic, historical, literary, cultural and moral judgements through a wide range of dramatic experiences.
The subject is delivered to all Year 7 pupils. Students in Year 8 and 9 have the opportunity to continue studying Drama as an extra lesson at the end of school. Drama remains a popular choice at GCSE and A Level. It regularly achieves well above the national average results.
Students are encouraged to attend as many theatrical performances as they can; not only for the purposes of their studies, but also to inform their own learning and devising of theatre.
The Department runs a popular bi-annual Drama trip to New York. Plans are under way for the next trip.
