Drama

Curriculum Intent

The Drama Curriculum at Grace Academy Coventry is a knowledge-based curriculum, which provides students with the powerful knowledge needed to create, perform and respond to Drama. We aim to use Drama as a tool for students to understand the world in which they live, as such we have based our curriculum around four central themes: childhood loss of innocence, conflict, identity and social inequality. Our spiral curriculum seeks to enable every student to: experience aspects of theatre-making other than performing, devise original pieces of theatre and analyse and perform scripts.
