At Key Stage Three, students are assessed regularly in the areas of Devising, Performing and Evaluating. Innovative teacher, peer and self- assessment is regularly used to enable students and teachers to reflect on learning and progress. Students are provided with the opportunity to be assessed individually, in pairs and in groups. All lessons are based on a thematic, issue or topic approach and are scheme based. Students are encouraged to reflect on their own potential for future progress, through a dialogue with the teacher. In addition, students are set bespoke targets to support future attainment. These current and aspirational levels are recorded formally by the student and teacher.

Key Stage 4
The AQA GCSE in Drama encourages students to:
• develop a personal interest in why drama matters and be inspired, moved and changed by studying a broad, coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study
• work imaginatively and creatively in collaborative contexts, generating, developing and communicating ideas
• consider and explore the impact of social, historical and cultural influences on drama texts and activities
• reflect on and evaluate their own work and the work of others
• develop and demonstrate competence in a range of practical, creative and performance skills
• develop a basis for their future role as active citizens in employment and society in general, as well as for the possible further study of drama
• actively engage in the process of dramatic study in order to develop as effective and independent learners and as critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds.
