Senior School Vocational Musical Theatre Course
In 2012 we introduced the Alkins School of Dance Musical Theatre Course to meet the demands of our students who want to widen their studies to include musical theatre. In addition to dance classes they study voice and dramatic performance skills. These students also take the BTEC qualification using suitable units that reflect their range of performing skills.
Most continue in the performing arts after leaving the sixth form and 2013 offers included – two places at The Royal Academy of Dance, a full scholarship at Bird College London and places at Laine Theatre Arts, Millennium Performing Arts, Oxford School of Drama, Merseyside Dance and Drama Centre and London Studio Centre. Students offered places on these dance and performing arts courses were also offered places to study subjects as diverse as music and marine biology at university.
Places on the Pre-Vocational and Vocational Courses at all levels is by assessment or audition.
