Performing Arts AS/A2 Level at Chichester High Schools Sixth Form

Course description

In the first year you will focus on developing your skills for performance in one or all of the specialisms: Dance,Drama and Music. As part of the course you will learn how to, and be responsible for, putting on a professional event. Finally you will work as part of a group to stage a production, using one or more of the performing arts specialisms.

The A2 year prepares you for work within the industry. You will look at the demands of getting work in the industry and how to prepare for this. You will choose one specialism and put together a showcase with the other students on your course, being involved in all aspects of preparation and rehearsal – this will be a fundraising event for a chosen charity. Finally you will put on one complete performance which allows you to showcase your skills.
