The current year 11 students will complete three Units.

Using the work created during the course, students will present an examiner assessed performance based on a given theme. This will be worth 40 per cent of the final grade.

The remainder of the marks at GCSE (usually 40 per cent) come from students’ explorative workshops and written assessed coursework for all units. These are the units set by the examination board. As part of the course the students analyse an external performance (professional production) and effectively learn how to evaluate and express clear detailed opinion. They have explored various themes such as ‘persecution’ and have the opportunity to attend a professional theatre performance.
