Year 10

During the year you will undertake:

  • one informal assessment which will be completed in the Autumn term. This will be an improvised or devised  piece in which, design/technical candidates can also be assessed.
  • two formal assessments will take place in the Spring and Summer terms, where you will be assessed and your mark will contribute to the final GCSE grade. Acting, improvisation, devised thematic, masks, makeup, costume design and prop design can be chosen for the two formalised assessments. 

    15 of the marks are awarded for focus and participation in rehearsals, with 45 marks being awarded for the final performance. This is marked by the subject teacher.
As you move through the year creating work for your assessment you will develop your skills with the support of a booklet. This will be completed as you move through the practical work and is structured to support the written paper.

At the end of Year 10 a  mock written paper is taken in preparation for GCSE and to gauge your understanding of topics studied over the year.
