If your application is approved then you will be invited to send us a virtual audition. This will include a video of you performing an audition piece, answering some questions, and a written task.

BTEC Virtual Auditions 2019/20

Deadline for applications:  Friday 10th April 2020.

For applicants looking to start September 2020 we will be holding virtual auditions. Offers will be made once we have received all submissions. The final deadline for applications will be Friday 10th April but we encourage people to apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Audition pieces should be between two and three minutes and can be whatever you want – circus, dance, a monologue – whatever best shows off your performance skills. Audition pieces are only watched by members of staff.

Applications for the BTEC course are made directly on our website here.

FDA / Vocational Auditions 2019/20

Due to current social distancing, we are holding Virtual Auditions.

Audition Fees

There is a small charge for the FDA / Vocational Virtual audition. If you have been invited to audition then you can pay here. If you have not yet been asked to audition then please don’t make any payments.

Please note the BTEC audition is free.
