The Drama Department’s aim is to develop each student’s potential in Drama and to provide all possible ways to achieve this. We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and reassuring classroom environment so that each student can understand themselves, others and society. It is important to us to create positive relationships within the classroom so that the students’ learning process is enhanced.

Over the course of the Drama curriculum it is our goal that each student will gain experience and develop their ability in using dramatic conventions and skills with confidence. It is also important that students use Drama as a tool in developing social skills. It is through the exploration of themes derived from other areas of the curriculum, the wider world and even the imagination, that students will achieve both goals.

Drama at Little Lever School ensures that students succeed in developing skills that they can transfer across the curriculum and it is essential that it supports other subjects. Drama offers students the opportunity to improve communication and independent learning skills. It allows students of all abilities to experience a level of success and achievement no matter what their degree of participation, and therefore increases a young person’s confidence and self-esteem.

As well as Drama being part of the curriculum, we strive as a department to offer high quality extra-curricular activities that all students can access. The annual school musical and drama clubs mean that students can enjoy, thrive in a creative environment and reach their full potential.

The KS3 drama ‘experience’ focuses on inspiring students to recognise that drama can equip students with the skills to participate effectively in stunning drama that they can be proud of.
