Is a life on the stage or screen calling you? Do you long to act, dance, sing or perform to live audiences or on TV? Our St Austell campus has a renowned reputation for its performing arts courses which enable students to progress to some of the most prestigious performing arts schools and conservatoires in the country. Our facilities are amazing and include The Keay Theatre, professional dance studios, and rehearsal and performance spaces.

If you wish to pursue a career in the performing arts then we offer you the choice of four specialist courses, all of which are equivalent to A-levels. Our Level 2 course is ideal should your GCSE results not be what you expected, with the option to progress to one of our Level 3 diplomas.

If your passion is to have a career within the performing arts sector, including acting, dancing and musical theatre, then this course could be for you. You will explore lots of disciplines in practical workshops gaining a vital insight into what is required to succeed in these creative industries. You will have the opportunity to take part in both on-campus and off-campus projects, including performing in our own seated theatre known as The Keay. This is the perfect course for an all-round experience, before you specialise in your chosen field of acting, dance or musical theatre.
