Entry deadline: 10th January 2018
Assessment date: Tuesday 23rd January 2018
These Awards will be made as a result of practical assessments and interviews which will be held at Radley on the above assessment date. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate a strong interest in and talent for Drama; to perform a short prepared piece of their own choice (a 2-3 minute monologue – classical or modern – or a poem or piece of prose, including some movement, that they have learnt by heart) and take part in a series of improvisations.
They will also have interviews with the Director of Drama and the Warden. Reports from prep school Headmasters and current Drama teachers will be important and candidates may, if they wish submit (by the entry deadline) a DVD/video of a dramatic production in which they have taken part. Award holders will be expected to take Drama at GCSE and it is hoped that they will continue the subject to AS/A2 level; should this not be case the Award will be reviewed in the light of their commitment to Drama in the Sixth Form.
