Future of drama in education: Discussion

At the NISDA conference 2013, held at St Paul's Girls' School, we began with a debate on the future of drama in education. We were encouraged very strongly by Barnaby Lenon, Chair of the Independent School Council, to become involved in the process of GCSE and A Level reform in drama and theatre studies. He suggested to us that we had a powerful voice in terms of curriculum reform and that we should, as a collective, share our opinions with the Exam Boards, the Department of Education and Ofqual.

As you are no doubt aware, the Department of Education and Ofqual have recently published their proposed content and assessment details for the new GCSE and A Level in drama and theatre. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you back to St Paul's Girls' School to discuss these proposals with a view to contributing, collectively and independently, to the consultation offered by Ofqual.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday 4 November from 10.30am until 3.30pm. Lunch will be provided.

Please request further details or RSVP to isabel.foley@spgs.org by Friday 17 October.  Please note that we are unable to provide parking onsite.
