Performance Shows

Selected young people from local schools and colleges are invited to attend subject related performances, executed by our HE students. Such visits give learners an insight into the learning at university.

Quotes from teachers

“‘Oh what a lovely war’ was amazing! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to expose our students to such a quality performance. We are always looking for ways to engage students with the curriculum and shows like this demonstrate how relevant and powerful performance can be to convey a message. It was truly exceptional and my students were buzzing after it.” – School teacher, Budmouth College (Weymouth)

“We are so delighted that we had the chance to attend this comprehensive performance. Such experiences are key in maintaining students appetite for the arts. Some of my students stated – ‘…the puppet things were really cool’ and ‘now I want to do a Performing Arts GCSE’. ” – School teacher, The Bourne Academy (Bournemouth)
