Over the last two months, the Year 11 Drama group have been preparing for their second GCSE practical examination with myself and Miss Jackson. On Wednesday 19th February, a visiting examiner from Pearson and an invited audience were treated to an extremely high standard of performances from our students.
They each performed two monologues from their chosen play texts including: Educating Rita, The Pillowman, Five Kinds of Silence, The Cagebirds, Invisible Friends and An Accidental Death of An Anarchist. It can be an extremely daunting and intense task to perform solely on stage in front of an external examiner and audience but the students gave captivating, mature and polished portrayals that demonstrated their impressive performance skills and confidence.
Congratulations to all students involved for their hard work and superb performances on the day, which we are sure will be reflected in their results in the summer.
