What is it to be a Performer at Marriotts?

In Drama our intent is to offer the students an insight into performance theatre and the various skills participating in Drama can evoke. Our students enjoy participating in practical lessons and work collaboratively with others to shape and rehearse their work with clear targets in order to improve their own practical work.

Students follow schemes of learning that not only focus on building practical skills but also focus on developing social skills. Throughout Year 7 and 8, students will also gain the transferrable vocational skills of confidence, teamwork, communication skills, time management, self management, self discipline and creativity which will allow them to flourish in the competitive world of work.
