The Drama department at Cheadle Hulme High School has two drama studios with use of a full lighting rig, staging blocks and sound system as well as a new auditorium in the Sixth Form Centre, which acts as another teaching and performance space.
The department consists of a Director of Faculty plus two Drama teachers.
We have approximately 32 KS3 classes in Drama. Schemes are designed across Year 7, 8 and 9 to develop the necessary skills for GCSE such as characterisation, devising, using dramatic devices, analysis and script work, as well as developing expertise in leadership, cooperation, creativity and communication.
At GCSE and A Level Drama we follow the Edexcel exam board.
Extra-curricular provision is a focus of the Faculty. Across the Performing Arts Faculty there are Drama Clubs for Years 7 – 9, Spotlights G&T Academy (Year 8-10), Limelights G&T Academy (Year 11-13), an annual school musical production, as well as numerous musical bands/ensembles.
We welcome trainee teachers and have in the past few years assisted with the training and development of many trainees.
