We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning.

The Drama Department students within Mascalls Academy will have a confident understanding of themselves and how they can adapt to social, cultural and economic situations within the wider world explored through the medium of Drama, therefore, developing their own understanding of where they fit in an ever changing world. Drama studies will allow them to experiment and develop their varied forms of communication; non-verbal and verbal, dissect characters from different global contexts and experiment with their creative thinking, so that they can take these transferable skills with them beyond the classroom walls making them well-rounded characters that will contribute positively to society. Alongside this we aim to inspire and enthuse students to consider the varied career opportunities within the arts.
