Classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz and Musical Theatre are available and pupils gain an understanding of basic techniques essential for building a foundation from which they can develop their skills either as a hobby, or with a view to pursuing a career within the Performing Arts industry.
Pupils are regularly entered for I.S.T.D. examinations in all subjects and enjoy performing in our school productions which are held every 3 years at professional local theatres.
Many pupils have gained places at some of the leading Performing Arts Colleges in the country and are now working professionally.
