Arts1 School of Performance: Sixth Form Virtual Open Days Laptop

Arts1 open days are in-person at our Studios in Linford Wood East, Milton Keynes. The Open Day will start with a presentation and you will also have the opportunity to see examples of our students' performance work and provide you with insights into how we give our students the best possible progression potential. You will also have the opportunity to participate in some workshops relevant to your chosen course. We want you to leave feeling informed about our school and confident in the training journey we provide for each individual student that studies with us. Following the open day you will automatically be invited to make an application and join us for an audition day where we will work with you to see if you could be one of a small team of talented students training with us each year.

I look forward to seeing you at the Open Day.

James Grimsey - Creative Director

Arts1 School of Performance: Sixth Form Story Matteo Johnson

Matteo Johnson

Ex Sixth Form Student

A few years ago I was torn between following a set path of academic studies at Sixth form or choosing to audition at Arts 1 to start the journey to potentially achieve my life long dream of being a performer.

It’s safe to say my choice has been the best one I’ve ever made. Arts1 has provided me with a massive set of new skills which have developed not only my performing but also have contributed into transforming my work ethic and way of living. The intensive training I received everyday is invaluable and I would not have felt prepared mentally or physically to train further on a three year course in one of the most competitive schools in the country without Arts1. The staff are so focused on each person as individuals and really focus on your own strengths and weaknesses. Their expertise in the industry and how to train young performers is unlike anything I’ve known before.

My 2 years at Arts 1 gave me some of the greatest experiences and opportunities and I will forever be grateful to them.
