Year 13

Topics Covered

The Certificate in Performing Arts – Drama

BTEC Level 3 qualifications in Performing Arts

Students cover 3 Units in Year 12.  They start their 4th unit at the end of the Summer Term.

In the Autumn Term students complete Devising for an Audience which involves working as an ensemble to create, rehearse and perform original theatre.

In the Spring Term students complete Contemporary Theatre Performance.  This involves wider reading to choose the plays and then editing two contrasting plays for performance.

The Summer Term is where students complete their Final unit for the Certificate with Performing to An Audience.  The students will focus their individual strengths in a performance role within the context of a full-scale theatrical performance.   The work will be offered to a live audience, whose experience and judgement of the performance should reflect those of a paying customer.

Students will then choose which units they would like to cover for Year 13 and start working towards one of them before the end of the academic year.
