Callum’s Story

“I enjoyed studying drama at school and was keen to study performing arts further. The course is great; the practical workshops focus on developing techniques, but there is also a lot of theory work involved too.   The facilities are excellent and love performing live shows in the theatre.”


Tiffany’s Story

“I enjoy the adult atmosphere at college, its very different to the usual school environment. I like the practical nature of the course and have developed new skills in filming and editing; to see a project through to completion is really rewarding. The course has also broadened my interest in journalism, and I plan to go on to Coventry University to study this further.”
