Drama at Longridge provides pupils with the means by which they can create, express and respond to their own ideas and concepts, through the effective use of a visual and verbal vocabulary. It should provide each individual with the skills to handle a variety of social/real life situations effectively and with an understanding of the feelings of others. We facilitate a creative approach to their learning, and enrich this by drawing upon real life experience, and encouraging pupils to take control of their own learning.
Through Drama, pupils are encouraged to develop an inherent sensitivity, responding to challenging experiences, both emotionally and aesthetically. This seeks to enhance their awareness and enjoyment of their own work and that of the group, building important and valued collaborative skills. It also develops their powers of observation and perception, through the use of published texts as well as their own scripted and improvised work. Many students thoroughly enjoy this subject area, whether or not they take it to examination level.
