Level 3 Diploma in Performing Arts
Previous Institution: The Telford Priory School
The end-of-year performance made me decide to come to Shrewsbury Colleges Group. I saw A Night at the Musicals two years ago and loved it. So it is amazing to now be in the performance. The tutor support is amazing and I’m hoping to take a gap year after college, before applying for drama school in London.
