Drama enables students to express themselves creatively as well as offer academic challenge. The transferrable skills developed in Drama stand students in excellent stead for later life – fostering collaborative teamwork, positive communication skills, and encouraging students to think creatively and present oneself confidently to an audience. We are lucky enough to have two specially designed Drama teaching spaces at Northgate, both fitted with lighting rigs, projectors and sound equipment.
Drama at Northgate is both process and product based. From Year 7 – 11, we focus on three core strands of:
- Creating and rehearsing
- Performing and Audience
- Evaluating and analysis
