Your Future

GCSE Dance will help to keep you physically fit as it is a demanding course, develop your creative flair and prepare you for further study in the Performing Arts, Creative Arts and Sports at A level (for which we have a 100% pass rate) and further on to university.  Students typically go on to study A level Dance and/or Theatre Studies, an Applied A level / BTec Level 3 in Performing Arts or take a sports based qualification.  Additionally, there are many alternative, specialist providers of Dance training and education for students who wish to focus their studies in this manner and we have had a number of students follow this pathway into well renowned Dance Conservatoires and Schools.
