    Are you seeking the buzz, thrill and excitement of performing in front of a live audience or are you perhaps the brains behind the production?

    This course is ideally aimed at students who enjoy delving into the world of music, dance and drama!

    As a student of the creative arts you will study at School for the Arts! This is a centre of excellence dedicated to art, design, communication, media, music and performance.

    You’ll even be given the opportunity to write and perform your own work and tour several local schools.

    You will also have the opportunity to study additional subject areas including set and costume design, lighting, stage and scenery, construction and sound production.

    Away from the academic side of things, Performing Arts is ideal for improving social skills, self-confidence and of course team-work.

    Many students have progressed on to higher education at prestigious drama schools throughout the UK!

    Students have the opportunity to join the Cooperative British Film Academy to get experience in the film industry through making a full length feature film with the academy.
