Our Two Year Diploma in Performing Arts is designed to equip students with the skills required to meet the demands of the performing arts industry. The course is holistically delivered through practical module-based learning, and equal focus is placed on acting, singing, dance and Film & TV.
The course is continually assessed and monitored through personal mentorship from our core staff and tutors, and focuses on individual progress both artistically and pastorally. Significant emphasis is placed on live performance, and students are offered frequent internal and external performance opportunities during the course.
Students will perform regular in-house presentations to the Academy faculty and invited guests. In addition, first year students will have the opportunity to perform at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. At the end of the second year, students perform in a full-scale musical at a London fringe venue to a public audience including industry professionals.

At the end of the second year, successful candidates will be awarded an OCR Cambridge Technical Extended Diploma in Performing Arts. This is a Level 3 qualification, and the equivalent of 3 A Levels. Students progress to Higher Education on performing arts degrees at Universities, or professional training at leading drama schools and musical theatre conservatoires.
