AS Drama and Theatre

  • Teaching from: September 2016
  • Exams from: June 2017
  • Specification code: 7261
  • QAN code: 601/8585/5

Our new specification will engage, inspire and challenge your students with more breadth in the subject criteria and more diverse content.

With content the same across all exam boards, we’ve made sure to build in as many opportunities as possible for your students to take part in a performance. Your students can choose to mix and match or specialise in performing, directing, lighting, sound, set, costume and puppet design.

Our AS and A-levels provide strong stand-alone qualifications, with real and credible value for students at both higher education and in their careers.
