Character education sits side by side with the core values of Trivium. Our work combines practical creativity alongside research and theoretical understanding. At KS3 we have designed a bespoke curriculum in which students experience, see and make theatre for themselves. They are given opportunities to articulate what they understand and how they feel about what they have experienced, seen and made. We build on these foundations at GCSE level (KS4) where the direction of learning is often decided by the students themselves. Lessons are often lively explorations of an idea or concept or experience. The written work at KS4 focusses on students’ demonstrating accurate use of terminology to construct written responses that combine deep understanding with personal opinion and theatrical awareness. Specializing as a performer, designer or technician further develops specialist knowledge and understanding. Our GCSE course refines students’ collaborative skills, their analytical thinking and approaches to research. They grow in confidence and maturity as they successfully realise their own ideas. They are well-prepared for the wider world.
