Would drama come under the Talented umbrella at high school?

Just that really. DD is 4 weeks in to year 7 and has been very highly praised by the drama department - she acts out of school too - and I am wondering if drama is recognised as a subject in this way? BTW I do not expect "Enrichment days" etc for her, see previous threads!

Thanks.

I know that Dance & Art can be, so perhaps Drama too, why not?

If you do a Google on "School Gifted & Talented Policy" then you will find that Drama is included.

I teach performing arts, and yes, drama is recognised. In some ways, it's a lovely thing to get recognition for, as it doesn't have to be something only the academic kids do well at. At the moment, I'm doing a fab project with my G&T Yr 9s, which will culminate in a public performance at a local theatre next month.

Hello, would just like to second EvilTwins point. My dd was on G&T list for music. It is so nice that you don't feel the need to compete with the academic kids. Everyone is good at something. If she is talented I would approach school and ask about the register. I don't mean from the label point of view but the fact it can open doors in terms of awards, scholarships, burseries etc, if she decides to make a career of it.
