Course: Performing Arts (Drama)
Previous School: Carmel College

Emma loved the performing arts course here and described her time as challenging, rewarding and emotional.

She said: The course content and opportunities surrounding it were outstanding. I came to New College Durham as I felt I would be receiving high quality training and support in achieving my best whilst enjoying college throughout the full 2 years.”

“I absolutely loved the course, staff and students. I made so many close friends who will be with me for a lifetime.  The campus had fabulous facilities and atmosphere. I couldn’t have asked for more!

“I felt that due to the high quality training provided by the staff, I learnt an enormous amount, especially in second year.  Some topics, for me, hit university level. The atmosphere from the staff and pupils on the course was also amazing – I felt they were like a second family to me.”

Emma is now studying to become a Primary Teacher at Leeds Trinity University.
