We offer a Sixth Form for students who love Musical Theatre. If this is you, read on!
Our aim is to provide a stimulating and qualifying quality training for 16-19 year olds with a passion to perform, inspired by fine and inspirational teaching, workshops and masterclasses from West End talent, and to support them in this crucial transition time with the very best pastoral support and regular monitoring.
Our Sixth form (Years 12 and 13) work both as two year groups and also as Company. They may also work alongside our Upper School pupils for some Vocational Classes depending upon grades. Expectations at all times are of a strong work ethic, and Sixth formers may carry appropriate responsibilities alongside their own training.
We aim to provide the highest calibre of training in the UK, understood within the context of world class theatre which we aim to experience at all levels, from local touring, to the West End (and from 2015) to Broadway!
The sixth formers work within a full timetable (8.15 starts) and guided by a BTEC Level 3 Extended Edexcel qualification, the opportunity to train and gain practical insight into being a teacher, and an extensive programme of Performing Arts classes within an Acting and Media Specialism or a Dance Specialism. Our reputation as a centre of excellence in Musical Theatre underpins the entire school and all pupils, in addition to their BTEC performances, are fully involved in our annual school shows, performances and many exciting workshops.
Students have a Year Group mentor who oversees their BTEC achievements and our "Open Door" policy means there is always someone they can talk to if they have concerns about work or other matters.
We would expect a pupil arriving at Redroofs 6 to come here with energy and drive and a sheer love of the Arts, and in particular Musical Theatre. We will support your passion, your talents and your energy and work together to ensure you get the most from your time and training.
Our specialist arts based vocational training in the Performing Arts is both a stage school and a pathway to University or Drama School . Students can immerse themselves within their Sixth Form studies knowing that they are a part of the industry, with access to opportunities such as auditions, and professional work where appropriate.
The School is registered with UCAS and will assist Year 13 pupils in securing places for Further Education.
