Ideal for students interested in pursuing a career in the arts. Students receive a variety of workshops including Music, Drama, Dance based around popular west end theatre productions. The Performing Arts (Ages 13 – 16) stream on Young Professionals will be moving to King’s College London as a stand-alone course. Taught in partnership with West End On Demand (a group of accomplished performers and professionals with a background on stage), this course will provide unrivalled tuition via the classroom and practical workshops.
The move to King’s College will give students a detailed insight into life in the Performing Arts industry in the UK’s capital city and ensure they receive the true benefit of the full-day workshops at London theatres. With a maximum of 11 students in each class, 25 hours of dance, singing, acting workshops, and two full-day excursions with a travel-card included in the course.
King’s College is a world-famous prestigious university in the heart of London. It is consistently ranked among the top Universities in both the UK and the world. Classrooms take place in the Virginia Woolf building, whilst meals and activities take place in the main building on the Strand, next to Somerset House.
Young Performer’s students will experience living in the United Kingdom’s capital city. They will be able to immerse themselves in London life, visiting cafés, restaurants, shops, galleries and museums.
To ensure our students have fun, make friends and get to know the UK, we have an exciting programme of on-site activities and days out. Days out of the school are split into two types: ‘excursions’ and workshop days. Students visit destinations related to their course that provide real-life experiences connecting practice and profession. Excursions are a fun way for students to visit famous landmarks and attractions with all students attending a Young Professionals course, providing an opportunity for students to mix with others from different subject streams.
From pizza nights, quizzes, and t-shirt designing competitions, to excursions to see London’s Covent Garden or visit the terrifying squalor of London dungeons, our Young Professionals have a fun-filled activities calendar!
