Drama is a celebrated subject at The Golden Circle. It has many personal benefits for students, developing self-confidence, resilience and emotional maturity. Through dramatic performance and analysis, our students build valuable practical, creative and communication skills. At GCSE and A Level, students extend their ability to create drama, in both performing and production roles. By analysing plays and live theatre, they develop the powers of deduction and analysis to become informed critics.
Our talented Drama teachers work with children from primary age to university level. At primary age, students practise public speaking, improvisation and conveying emotion through body language. At GCSE and A Level, teachers help students to craft engaging monologues and curate group performances. Through the critical analysis of dramatic texts, students develop strong essay writing skills and hone their written exam technique.
