Musical Theatre Btec

Does anywhere do a Musical Theatre Btec that is not so dance based? Preferably based around the Midlands area and able to give support to a young person with SEN.

Starford on Avon has a college that does a range of MT Btecs I believe-not sure how far away that is for you. And don’t know how good they are with SEN.

That’s quite a distance. We are much further North.

no personal experience of any of these but do know of at least one person with SEN who was well supported at BOA. Other than BOA, they are just ones I've heard about in passing conversations:

Birmingham Ormiston (BOA)
Birmingham Theatre School
The Manchester College
Midlands Academy of Musical Theatre (think maybe a level 4 course)
Expressions Academy (Nottingham area?)

and I do know of a few people that have done performing arts at Yale College in Wrexham - singers rather than dancers - who have gone on to mt diplomas and degrees.

My DD did 4 years at BOA (Birmingham Ormiston Academy ) in Birmingham city centre - that was BTEC plus if 16 can do A Level along side or GCSEs if start at 14. Great school. She is now at one of the top London schools. They do dance on MT but not too hard. She did her dance more so outside of BOA.

BOA supported my child well with SEN during years 10 and 11.

What sort of hours are expected. BOA would be an hour train journey there and back which is do-able but might be too much to expect if there are lots of late nights etc.
