Develop your performance talents in a friendly and inspiring atmosphere.

This course provides students with a strong grounding in performing arts and introduces a broad range of topics that support progression to further study.

Our aim is to encourage you to develop a knowledge and understanding of performing arts, and to grow in confidence across a range of disciplines. Students will build upon existing skills, and learn new acting and dance techniques for rehearsals and performances – all within a highly creative arts college environment.

Our performing arts students benefit from the College’s partnerships and links to:

Hay Festival

Performing Arts Preview Day
During the summer, we run a ‘Preview Day’ for students who have been accepted to study on the course. This is to help everyone settle in prior to the course starting in September. It is not compulsory, but it is a great way to meet the team and make new friends. The majority of students progress to Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts and continue their performance education. Others will feel confident to enter employment or take up alternative study.
