Curriculum Intent

At Polam Hall School our Drama curriculum seeks to:

Develop both Drama specific skills and transferable interpersonal and intrapersonal skills such as empathy, tact, teamwork and confidence which will equip students with the necessary skills to be successful in the world of work should they choose a career in the Creative Arts or not.

Provide a diverse and engaging curriculum which provides stimulating learning experiences that have strong cross curricular links.

Provide the opportunity for all students to engage with professional theatre performances both live and recorded as well as workshops with industry professionals.

Encourage students to explore current issues, challenge themselves and take risks in a safe creative environment, whilst creating responsible and independent learners who are able to be resilient in the face of challenges both individually and collaboratively. 

At GCSE students follow the Pearson Edexcel GCSE Drama (2016) specification. Further details can be found using this link:
