Preparing for the future, Miss Piggott has been introducing our KS4 & KS5 students to the variety of job opportunities available to them in the Creative Arts industry, through a serious of interviews with various industry experts!
'15 minutes with' gives our students an opportunity to hear from actors, theatre directors, producers and make up artists to name a few, providing them with an insight into what those careers involve from a daily perspective as well as how the universities and courses students choose to study at will enhance those career paths.
