Pupils are given rigorous training in the performing arts, combined with an extensive academic programme of study.


Vocational Curriculum

In Middle School pupils have the option to audition for either the Middle School Dance or the Performance Foundation Course, progressing to the Sixth Form Dance, Commercial Music, Musical Theatre or Acting Course once they reach Sixth Form.

Academic Curriculum

In the Middle School, compulsory GCSE subjects are English language, English literature, maths, science (double or triple award) and a modern foreign language (French or Spanish). Students on the Performance Foundation Course complete GCSE drama as part of their vocational timetable. Pupils also choose three additional subjects from the following options: drama, geography, religious studies, art, history, ICT and music.

Pupils are taught in small classes by well-qualified, highly experienced teachers. This ensures that every pupil is given the best possible chance to attain their maximum potential. Middle School academic lessons take place 8:30am to 12:55pm followed by vocational classes from 1.45pm to 6.30pm on weekdays.

Compulsory subjects are English (language and literature), maths, double (or triple) science and French or Spanish.
