I really enjoyed studying at the College due to the teaching, with the tutors having a wealth of experience and knowledge and a very approachable attitude. They just want to help students.

I chose to study at Lewisham Southwark College because it was the only College nearby that specialised in Performing Arts. The course included Drama, dancing and singing, all of which I was keen to pursue.

I always knew I wanted to perform, and Southwark College helped me further my dance training, I learned a variety of dance styles and was given extra singing lessons so I kept up those skills too.
