The Drama department provides three different extra-curricular opportunities for learners in Key Stages 3 and 4. All staff members work co-constructively to shape and define the different projects.
Film making club
This club runs between September and December. The aim is for learners to write, produce, film and edit an original film that is based on an issue. We intend this year’s film to be based on British values and to be used in SMSC provision within the academy.
The whole school performance for this year is going to be ‘Alice in Wonderland’. The performance will be based on a script written by Mr Lee but co-constructed with the cast. Auditions will begin in September and the performance will be the last week before February half term.
Heartlands Academy is a registered centre for LAMDA examinations.
Selected learners will have the opportunity to rehearse for and take examinations in:
- Speaking Verse and Prose
- Reading for Performance
- Speaking in Public
