Our performing arts program is more than just a support for the students.

The core team of theschool continue to work within their own industry providing theschool access to a wide range of performing artists that bring their professional performing knowledge directly to the student through workshops and classes, providing the student with a more knowledgeable  outlook of the performing art world and what it can offer them professionally if they so wish to follow this route.

Past students have gone onto featured film roles, local and national performing arts schools, whilst others are working abroad teaching, dancing and performing. Current students have performed at the Hippodromes, ‘Bugsy Malone’, gaining the main role of Tallulah, whilst others have worked under Matthew Bourne and have performed professionally in Billy Elliot. Other students, under guidance from working professionals, continue to train on the performing arts program as well as HE Institutes, whilst working towards auditions at dance, drama and musical theatre schools, for careers in the performing art world.

theschool’s performing arts program is more than just a support for the student who wishes and dreams to have a career in the performing arts word, we will support and nurture the students dreams and aspirations whatever they may be and we will always advise them on the best possible route to their success. Belong, Believe, Become.
