Course Information

Course structure:

The GCSE will run over 2 years (10 and 11) but we’ll do lots of prep work in years 8 and 9.

Most of the time we will focus on practical performances, building a range of skills in years

8 and 9 and then focusing on the GCSE in years 10 and 11.

In Year 10 we will look at a scripted performance, a devised piece and a live theatre performance.

In Year 11 we will focus on a scripted performance and a devised piece.

In both years we will also prepare for the written exam.

How will I be assessed?

60% practical performance, taking the best 2 grades over Year’s 10 and 11and 40% written exam to be taken in Year 11.
