What will I be studying?

The course is made up of three components:

1 Exploring the Performing Arts.

2 Developing Skills & Techniques in Performing Arts.

3 Performing to a Brief.

The three-block structure, explore, develop and apply, has been developed to allow students to build on and embed their knowledge. This allows them to grow in confidence and then put into practice what they have learned. There are expectations that:

  • Students will bring kit to change into every lesson.
  • Students will perform in front of their class and larger audiences.
  • Assessments will be filmed.
  • Students will need determination to improve – some content is difficult at the beginning.
  • Students will give and receive feedback.
  • For all components written coursework is required.

What can I do after wards?

The BTEC Technical Award is a practical introduction to life and work in Performing Arts, so you can develop your understanding of the sector and see whether it’s an industry you would like to be in. It gives students a great starting point for academic or vocational study post-16, as well as preparing them for future employment.

- Martha Graham


If you're a former Graham School student or family member of a current student and work in any field of science we want to hear from you! We want to share examples of local people with our students. We would ask for a photo of you and a brief description of your role in science.
