Year 11 GCSE Drama Dates

There are some very important dates coming up for students studying GCSE Drama regarding rehearsals, exams and controlled assessments.

 There are some very important dates coming up for students studying GCSE Drama regarding rehearsals, exams and controlled assessments.

Currently students are working towards their final practical exam, which is worth 40% of the GCSE mark.  They must work in groups independently of the teacher and rehearse regularly on times decided by the group. 

As well as planned rehearsal times during the school day, we are offering the students the opportunity to work with their group on Saturday mornings and also two days during the Easter holidays.  I have listed the dates below and expect students to take full advantage of these:

 

Saturday Rehearsals:

Saturday 22nd March 2014 9:30am – 12:30pm

Saturday 29th March 2014 9:30am – 12:30pm

Saturday 26th April 2014 9:30am – 12:30pm

 

Easter Holiday Dates:

Tuesday 15th April 2014 10am – 2pm

Wednesday 16th April 2014 10am – 2pm

 

Exam Dates:

Tuesday 29th April 2014

Wednesday 30th April 2014

Thursday 1st May 2014

 

Please also be aware that students should have now completed all the controlled conditions written elements.  If they have not they must make time to complete this over the next two weeks.

We ask for your support with the Drama GCSE by encouraging your child to attend regular rehearsals and complete any outstanding work as soon as possible.  We hope that you will be able to attend the exam performances; these will take place after school on the dates shown.
