Drama and Music
Ashbourne’s Drama and Music students develop the academic, technical and creative skills to pursue a career in these fields, as well as to achieve the highest results to study at top UK universities. Students receive well-balanced tuition in theory and practice, thus combining academic rigour with the practical and creative demands of the courses.
Drama practical workshops are deliberately limited to five or six so students can benefit from the personal direction, encouragement and expertise of their teachers. Music students can take advantage of the dedicated music facilities to practise, compose and record using Mac computers and industry-standard software. Students also get the chance to see a great selection of world-class theatre productions and live performances.
Auditions and Scholarship
Ashbourne offers scholarships to gifted and talented students. Candidates are invited to perform their chosen monologue or piece of music at auditions, which they then discuss with the panel at interview.
Ashbourne Revue, Chamber Concerts and Creative Arts Event
Ashbourne offers fantastic opportunities for students to write, perform and direct in a wide variety of events to gain experience, showcase their talents and have fun. The Ashbourne Revue, which typically involves a significant number of the student body, the Creative Arts Event and Chamber Concerts are true highlights in the college calendar.
