Academy of Performing Arts
The Academy of Performing Arts will open in September 2012 in tandem with the planned opening of the New Worthing
College at The Warren.
The Academy will offer exceptional teaching and strong links with the industries to which our students aim to graduate. The Academyâ€™s student population will be a diverse community, united by a shared passion for theatre-making.
The Academy will pride itself on the professional standard of its student productions, some of which may be attended by agents, casting directors and theatre practitioners. Our belief is that the Academy's close links with the profession will keep our training relevant and accessible to all people with exceptional talent.
Opportunities for performing will include playing at theatres in Worthing and Brighton, taking part in local tours across
Sussex, and performing at the Brighton Festival in your second year.
Among the many things which are distinctive to the Academy is the level of personalisation throughout all the training -
the skills of highly experienced specialists are harnessed in providing a training tailored to the needs of each individual
