We value the importance of a broad and rigorous academic education to enable pupils to develop intellectually; thereby helping them reach their full potential in the world of the performing arts and beyond.


Pupils can choose either the Sixth Form Dance, Commercial Music, Acting or Musical Theatre Course, and will spend half their day studying A-Level subjects.

Sixth Form academic lessons take place from 8.30am to 12.55pm each weekday morning, vocational classes take place from 1.45pm to 6.30pm each weekday afternoon.

Vocational Curriculum

Our Sixth Form courses are for a duration of two years, with the exception of the Dance course which is a three-year programme of study.

Academic Curriculum

In the Sixth Form, depending on academic ability, students can choose to study up to a maximum of four Advanced Level qualifications.


Sixth Form Option Blocks

Students on the Musical Theatre, Commercial Music and Acting courses are expected to take at least three A-Level subjects. Due to the fact that they are taking the Trinity diploma, the Dance course does not have this requirement. Pupils must select one subject for each option block.
