A Weekend of Drama

Twenty two of our Performing Arts Department GCSE Drama students headed off to North Wales at the beginning of March to take part in a residential weekend at the Conway Centre.

The aim of the course was to give the students the opportunity to work with theatre professionals and students from other schools to help to inspire them and raise their attainment at GCSE. A wide variety of theatre techniques were introduced and students were able to develop their competence in a range of practical, creative and performance skills.

Working in mixed school groups, the students participated in a number of workshops over the weekend including Puppetry, Script Work, Movement and Physical Theatre. The Sunday morning consisted of final performances by the students which focused on the skills they had gained over the weekend.
