Speech & Drama
Bring text to life
The Speech and Drama syllabus specifications are designed for candidates who want to develop their skills by engaging with a variety of forms including poetry, prose and play extracts in a range of styles from different periods.
We do not prescribe the content, which allows candidates and teachers to choose literary and dramatic forms in which they have a particular interest or that complement their studies.
- Develop skills in speaking and understanding text and communication by bringing text to life through performance
- Practical tasks including performing poetry, prose, extracts from plays and discuss the work with the examiner
- Integrates study from wider subjects such as English language, literature and history.
- Available from Initial to Grade 8 for solo exams.
“These exams give you a whole foundation of confidence, progression and a sense of achievement, and the external celebration of that achievement which is really important.”
Xenia Horne, Trinity Examiner
