COURSE INFORMATION

WHO IS THE COURSE SUITED FOR?

The Theatre Arts School provides education at Secondary School level for age 10 - 16 years and our unique course provides both academic studies and vocational performing arts training for pupils who aspire to become professional performers and follow a career in the entertainment industry.

WHAT QUALIFICATIONS ARE OFFERED?

General education takes place in years 7 - 9, followed by GCSE's in years 10 and 11. Pupils are encouraged to take all subjects at GCSE level to gain as many qualifications as possible. In addition, vocational qualifications in dance are offered through the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) syllabus in Classical Ballet, Modern Dance and Tap Dance and acting examinations are offered through LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts).

WHO IS THE COURSE ACCREDITED BY?

The Theatre Arts course is accredited by The Independent Schools Joint Council. Vocational dance examinations are awarded by the ISTD and acting examinations by LAMDA.

WHEN DOES THE COURSE RUN?

The course runs the same as any other school, 5 days a week (Monday to Friday) during term time. The day begins at 8.45am and runs until 6pm as we have a lot on the timetable! Occasionally pupils may be required to attend additional rehearsals and exam sessions outside of term time.

WHAT IS ON THE TIMETABLE?

A typical day consists of half the day academic studies and the other half vocational performance classes, for example, the morning may include English, Maths, Spanish and History, followed by Ballet, Tap, Acting and Singing in the afternoon.

WHEN CAN NEW PUPILS JOIN?

Pupils are able to join at any year group from year 7 up to year 10 at the beginning of any term.

WHAT ARE THE COURSE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS?

Entrance to this course is by audition only and our team of specialist course tutors interview and audition every applicant for this course. As well as a good general standard of education, we are looking for a degree of potential that can be developed, as well as a real interest in and commitment to the art of performance. 

Although not a necessity, previous experience in performing arts training is advised. Further entry requirements can be found here.

HOW WILL ITALIA CONTI SUPPORT THE TRANSITION FROM A PREVIOUS SCHOOL?

We know that moving from one school to another, whether from Primary to Secondary or to a more specialist environment, can be a life changing decision for pupils and parents. To help with this process we have a range of practices to support pupils transitions including induction days, the sharing of information between schools, pupil and parent visits to the school prior to starting, distribution of curriculum booklets, talks at the school, taster days and a range of social events. Our current pupils are always keen to share their experiences so an informal visit to our school is highly recommended! Our objective is to ensure that pupils feel fully prepared on entry to the school.

HOW MANY PUPILS ARE IN EACH CLASS?

We see our pupils as individuals and maximise achievement through small teaching groups and highly qualified and skilled staff. This is a major benefit to our pupils and is monitored on an annual basis.

HOW ARE PARENTS KEPT INFORMED OF PUPILS PROGRESS?

Italia Conti staff monitor the academic and pastoral care of each pupil and work closely with parents. Full reports are sent home every half term following formal examinations. This in depth provision ensures that parents are kept well informed of their child’s progress. There is an annual meeting between parents and subject teachers for each year group, and parents are always welcome to visit school at any time during the academic year. Homework is an essential part of the learning programme and all pupils are given a homework timetable and homework planner to help them organise their time. Parents play a vital role in monitoring homework and excellent communication is in place through email, telephone and pupil’s planner.
