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.
