Page Background

“Studying both Music and

Drama has improved my

confidence as a

performer and a

person. I have

benefited from

performance

opportunities

in both areas,

through Senior

Choir and Ukulele

Club, as well as performing in

the annual school production.

There is great encouragement

for Sixth Form students to take

advantage of the wealth of

opportunities available.”

Rebekah Parsons

Career within the Performing Arts

“The Science Department has

given me the opportunity to

develop my understanding of

high level concepts in depth,

as well as giving me the skills

I need to develop my own

independent learning. There

is support and feedback

available from staff whenever

required. There are also extra-

curricular opportunities which

have greatly encouraged me to

pursue a STEM career and will

be invaluable to my university

applications.”
