The Arts1 6th Form is, without exaggeration, one of the most amazing, rewarding and supportive places to train. The teachers are supportive, experienced and friendly. The classes are perfectly planned out to assure maximum progress for every student involved.

The 6th form course assures no student is left behind and they are all treated equally and fairly. You learn
things that you never would’ve thought you could, you think in new ways that open your eyes to different paths and ideas. The people that attend the course and fun, supportive and hard working and everyone pulls their own weight and they have to be up to the challenge for a very tough but extremely rewarding experience. It has so far been the best experience of my life.
