At key Stage 4 in Performing Arts, students get the opportunity to complete a BTEC course which is equivalent to a GCSE.
Students will focus on the acting element of the course, completing 3 components.
Component 1 - students will study a theatre practitioner and analyse a live performance in which they will have to write a written document for.
Component 2 - students will use their acting skills in order to put on their own performance in the style of the theatre practitioner using a script.
Component 3 - students will be given a set task in which they will work in groups to create a devised piece of theatre using what they have learnt in previous units.
This course is a chance for students to put on a performance and to also study the details in creating a performance.
