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
