Bodens is a performing arts school for children and teenagers. Established in 1973, we educate, build confidence, engage with each other and the local community, and train those that want to be ready for the outside world of performing arts. Many of our students are currently working professionally in television, film or theatre. They have fun, gain confidence and self assurance - this helps them to believe more strongly in themselves!

We offer Trinity Arts Awards and examinations in musical theatre, singing and acting. Dance examinations in ISTD tap and modern and RAD ballet. We have professional premises and all our fully-qualified tutors are constantly undergoing professional development to provide ever-changing classes in a world of ever-changing children and young people.


We now also provide professional training and accredited qualifications as part of our two year full-time course. The course is suitable for 16-18 year olds and is completely government funded. If you are passionate about the performing arts and are looking to continue your education through vocational studies within the performing arts field, take a look at our prospectus on our website - useful link below. You can apply to the course via our website or by requesting an application form from us by phone or email.

The course is full time (30 hours per week) with classes being held in professional performing arts studios. Places are limited to twenty students per year group. You will graduate from the course with a Level Three Extended Diploma in Performing Arts, and a Level Four Associate Diploma in Acting or Musical Theatre.
