Performing Arts

Our performing arts courses will develop your skills in acting, directing, movement and singing. We have a range of levels on offer and are here to help you develop and grow, ensuring you gain both the practical and academic skills that you’ll need to progress on to Higher Education including drama school or directly into work. 

The College has a state-of-the-art purpose-built theatre, a dance studio and workshop spaces. You will be taught by an experienced team, who continue to work in the Creative Industries and continue to further their skills and knowledge through consistent interaction with the performing arts industry. 

Gaining employability skills is important so we work with a number of companies to provide work experience and work-related project opportunities either individually or in a group.      
Projects have included casting for Wind/Rush Generations at the National Theatre Connections Festival, a Children’s Theatre tour to local primary schools, performing at both the Kiln and Soho Theatres (in association with National Theatre Connections) and a Christmas production of Little Shop of Horrors at our Sarah Siddons Theatre. We also make regular visits to participate in workshops at professional theatres and to watch their productions.
