Drama offers a unique contribution to the curriculum. It has value as a cross curricular subject and as a subject or art in its own right. The drama classroom provides opportunity for students to develop skills in communication and empathy, whilst supporting students in understanding concepts and characters in other subjects. In fact the study of English, History and Literature are closely related and Drama offers a complementary learning experience, reinforcing the rest of the school curriculum.
Society and the workplace require confident, effective communicators with the ability to be creative leaders. CCEA’s Drama qualification affords students the chance to make these aspirations a reality.
