Performing Arts

 

What we will do:

The Twickenham School Performing Arts Department will follow the whole school policy for curriculum provision. In addition to this, the Performing Arts department will also:

  • Offer a comprehensive extra-curricular timetable including weekly clubs, performance opportunities and events
  • Ensure all drama students see a live theatre performance
  • Ensure all KS4 students access professional workshops and masterclasses with external agencies to enhance their curriculum studies

Specialist teaching

Drama: Years 7 to 11 will be taught by a specialist teacher in a purpose build teaching space with a focus on learning through practical exploration. KS3 students have 1 50 minute period a week in which they work practically and develop skills in creating, performing and appreciating drama mediums. KS4 students have 1 100 minute lesson, with a practical and theory mixed approach, and 1 50 minute period, with a theoretical approach, to meet the exam specification. This model reflects the demands and skill sets needed for success at GCSE level.

All students have folders. Students add to their folder across Years 7 to 9 in a portfolio manner, logging each learning journey, assessment and homework piece. Year 10 and 11 have a folder thoroughly documenting their classwork, homework and revision materials including progress tracking documents.

Music: Years 7 to 11 will be taught by a specialist teacher in a purpose build teaching space with access to rehearsal rooms, professional equipment and specialist software on MAC PCs. KS3 students have 1 50 minute period a week in which they work practically and develop skills in composing, performing and appreciating musical genres. KS4 students have 1 100 minute lesson, with a practical focus, and 1 50 minute period, with a theoretical focus, to meet the exam specification. This model reflects the demands and skill sets needed for success at GCSE level.
