Drama at Totnes Progressive School
Drama allows us to explore social skills, life skills and to creatively explore the world around us. Drama is at its very core, an interactive and collaborative subject, so the students have to understand that whilst it is an engaging and practical subject, it is also one that will, at times, put them out of their comfort zone and requires commitment and focus.
Key stage three projects are structured around providing the students with a variety of ways communicating, including, mime, devising, physical theatre, script work, small and whole group activities, exploring Drama conventions and finding creative solutions to dramatic problems. At GCSE, we study specific texts, review live theatre, perform scripted pieces and devise our own creative and challenging work.
