The use of drama and drama techniques enhances learning and provides an inspiring experience within a safe framework.

Drama allows young people the chance to become:

  • successful learners
  • confident individuals
  • responsible citizen
  • effective contributors

by helping them to:

  • make informed choices and decisions
  • work as an individual or part of a team
  • communicate effectively
  • understand different beliefs and cultures
  • learn about people and place
  • develop self esteem and respect for others
  • resolve conflict
  • develop critical thinking
  • solve problems

Drama enhances personal and social development, aiding understanding of self and others.

By using role play and other methods, drama helps students to empathise with and understand the lives of other people. It gives them the chance to put themselves into the place of other people and see things from a different point of view.

Drama stimulates imagination and concentration. It encourages listening and observation skills. It develops language.

Drama allows young people the chance to make sense of the world around them and try out new ideas, thoughts and solutions. This can increase their confidence.

Performance is an important part of drama. Performance can take many forms. It may be a full stage production, the sharing of a scene with class-mates, or a short monologue. Within these areas, pupils learn to work together and as individuals.

They can also learn different areas of expertise – for instance, as performers, directors or stage managers.
