Performance Studies A level at Sir Bernard Lovell School

Course description

Do you enjoy theatre? Are you a musician? Is performance your ‘thing’? This exciting course will give you a new burst of creative energy and improved understanding of how the discrete performing arts areas (drama, dance, music) work together. You will explore the work of practitioners who have pushed the creative boundaries - you will understand why performance is exciting. Politics, social and cultural history – all of these impact upon the performing arts. The swinging 60’s, gender politics and the Thatcher Years form the backdrop to just some of the performing arts works you will explore both in theory and practice.

This course enables you to; grow creatively; build confidence, communication skills and understanding; develop your critical thinking and analytical skills, and put your own performance work (drama, dance and music) in front of an audience.

Future opportunities

  •  Higher Education e.g. BA degrees in any subject(s) in various combinations as joint honours or single honours in universities; schools/colleges of dance, or drama and Higher National Diplomas.
  •  Employment – The core skills of performing arts are intrinsic to any profession and /or career where communication, interpersonal and creative skills are required – specifically: creative and multi-media industries, law, PR/human resources, and teaching and health related areas.
