Where does this subject lead me?
Drama GCSE builds on the basic skills learned during years 7, 8 and 9, developing a student’s ability to use a large range of drama conventions in order to explore topics, issues and play-texts in a creative, imaginative and skilled manner. For more info., visit our KS4 Drama page.
Whether you prefer performing or being back stage drama can develop your confidence, communication and teamwork skills and if you are involved in planning or organising a performance then these skills can be useful in many jobs.
The skills you gain from doing drama can lead to careers such as performing arts, media, business, law, advertising, sales, hospitality and tourism.
