We’re confident that you’ll approve of our new specification. We’ve worked closely with teachers across the country to develop a specification that will inspire, challenge and motivate you and your students.
We’ve kept as much emphasis as possible on the practical, so your students have every opportunity to take part in a performance. Students can study as a performer, or a designer, or both. For design, they can specialise in lighting, sound, set, costume and puppets.
Our specification is diverse, practical and accessible to students of all abilities, and provides opportunities for teachers and students who may have studied Performing Arts rather than Drama in the past.
Schools and colleges may set their own internal deadlines Coursework deadline for GCSE Drama and Performing Arts (8261/C)
