College is a great time to make new friends, challenge your thinking and try something new! Our Plus More Programme offers so many opportunities for you to get involved and add more to your college experience, as well as providing excellent material for your job and university applications. The programme is launched with a Plus More Fair and includes:
The workshop covers many musical numbers as well as script work. You don’t have to study Performing Arts or Music to take part in Performance Workshop; we welcome anyone! Students debut their talent at the annual Performance Showcase.
We also organise a West End theatre trip each year for students to get involved in. We watch a famous show, and students get the opportunity
to take part in backstage workshops led by West End performers.
Each year, you elect a Student President and Vice President who become members of the College Governing Body, representing the voice of the students.
The Student Council play an important role in giving direct student feedback to college leaders, in order to improve the college student experience as a whole. They also help to organise events and fundraising projects, as well acting as Student Ambassadors at college events.

Students often organise and run these gig nights, from the auditions straight through to the show night itself. The gigs attract many aspiring musicians, as well as staff and students that just want to perform for fun. The music is varied, from heavy metal to musical theatre numbers, with even with a bit of rap thrown in! Our very own musical legend Andrew Timberlake, Science Teacher, has even been known to take the stage by storm!
We can’t wait to hear what you will bring to the gig nights.
There is a taught element to ensure that you gain advanced skills in researching a topic, formulating an argument and presenting your ideas.
