Teachers

Our courses are delivered by industry professionals, with our team including West End performers, actors from stage and screen, vocal coaches and producers. Students are monitored and mentored by our core faculty throughout. We also welcome guest masterclass teachers, choreographers and directors for various projects and performances.

 

Pastoral Care

We are passionate that our students’ welfare is a priority at all times. Students receive regular pastoral tutorials and can approach their tutor at any time if they wish to discuss any concerns.

Our Head of Curriculum and Pastoral Lead Carole Bowles has many years of experience supporting young people during their studies and is available for confidential appointments for any students who would like this. Carole also works closely with our Safeguarding Manager, Mel Leicester-Evans.

During induction week, students participate in a group well-being workshop where they will receive information and practical tips on how to support their physical and emotional well-being throughout the course, and beyond. This includes both dietary education and coaching strategies. We find this hugely beneficial to young people coping with the demands of intensive performing arts training. In keeping with the culture at our weekend Academies, the Full-Time Academy is a safe and nurturing environment.
