Teaching multiple areas

My school is moving to an acadamy for the new year. Myself and other teachers are now being informed that we have to teach other classes. For example I am a maths teacher and informed I also have to teach Drama. I have no experience / knowledge nor urge to teach Drama. Not only is this a big learning curve to me but also the pupils will be getting lessons from someone who has no knowledge. Other teachers in the school also getting allocated lessons that they have no skill set for within that area.

To me this is breaking my contract as I am employed as a MAths Teacher. Can acadmaies do this when taking over from local government?

Thank you
