Why study Drama? Because, as Alfred Hitchcock said,
Drama is life with the dull bits left out!
Drama is not just about acting and theatre; it is a chance for pupils to explore what makes them and others tick in a supportive and creative environment. Drama is also a subject that gives pupils the chance to work collaboratively with their peers, thus aiding their communication skills.
Where can it lead?
It goes without saying that a career in the performing arts is an option but there is not a career that does not involve or require communication in some form and so Drama will help whatever career path is chosen. Having said that the most popular professions students of Drama go onto are the likes of Law, Journalism, Media and Psychology.
