Why study Drama & Theatre Studies?

The Drama and Theatre Studies course aims to develop students’ interest and enjoyment in drama and theatre both as participants and as informed members of an audience, fostering an enthusiasm for and critical appreciation of the subject. It is dedicated to providing a creative platform where the students develop their physical, social and emotional skills. It considers theatre from the perspective of the director, the actor and the designer; and is taught through experiential and practical lessons allowing us to thrive as an exciting, highly creative and enjoyable subject area.  

What can I do with Drama & Theatre Studies after A-Level?

The list is endless. Many students will take a degree in Theatre, Drama, Film, Media or Performing Arts. Others will gain entry into a specialist drama college such as Central School or LAMDA. There are also the opportunities to work in technical design and production in theatre, film or television.

You only have to see the credits of a play to see how many people work on a production in different capacities or work in newspapers, magazines or journalism in general. University statistics show drama graduates have one of the highest employment rates because the subject develops self-confidence and produces well rounded, articulate individuals with the ability to adapt to challenging situations.

Drama & Theatre Extras

A-Level Drama and Theatre Studies enables you to see a variety of professional productions; as well as meeting and attending workshops led by practitioners from various theatre companies. In the last few years our students have seen productions at theatre such as the National Theatre, Regents Park Theatre, the Hammersmith Lyric and Cambridge Arts; and worked practically with the likes of RADA, Cheek by Jowl and Frantic Assembly.
