Northfleet Technology College is launching a sixth-form performing arts academy in September.
This month, pupils from the school will be performing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Teacher Dan Keating said: “I am so proud of our students and all they have achieved. We have a magical show the whole team can be proud of.
“Watching the performing arts develop over the last few years has been magical and I am excited to watch this develop even further when we move on to a new and exciting chapter for performing arts at Northfleet Technology College.
“The government may be placing less value on the arts and creative subjects but we recognise the important role these subjects play.
“We give students the room and skills to develop into well-rounded, individual-thinking and team-playing students.”
It is hoped the performing arts academy will grow, as the drama department has, into a successful company of professional actors.
The aim is to offer first-class drama training to students with the possibility to work with industry professionals.
The show will run from Tuesday until Thursday, June 26, at 7.45pm.
Tickets cost from £3 for concessions.
