Biology, Chemistry, Drama & Theatre Studies, BTEC Dance, BTEC Musical Theatre

I chose to study at Hereford Sixth Form College because it has an exceptional reputation. I came on an Open Morning and went to the Drama department and it was really exceptional so that pretty much clinched it for me.

Former school: Malvern College

Studied: Biology, Chemistry, Drama & Theatre Studies, BTEC Dance, BTEC Musical Theatre

The Performing Arts Musical Theatre course is an amazing basis for dance training which I hadn't really had much of before and also gave a less academic side and focused on performance. The tutor being a dancer really helps this course because performance is vital and having someone who can choreograph and bring sequences to life is incredibly useful. The dance studio is probably my second home. It's a large space with a sprung floor and mirrors.
We attend quite a few live performances. Recently we went to London to see two musicals - Memphis and Miss Saigon. Matthew Bourne's Edward Scissorhands was incredible and we actually met Matthew Bourne - he is just amazing and has choreographed two of my favourite musicals. Being able to see him and speak to him was certainly a highlight of the year.
