So, let’s meet the team!
Miss Jo – Drama
Performing Arts has always been a massive part of my life. From a young age, I began to perform and sing at school… in productions and concerts, when leaving school I went on to study a 2 yr BTEC in Performing Arts which consisted of vocal training, Dancing and Drama. After completing PA BTEC I went on to complete a 2 yr BTEC national diploma in Music Practice which enabled me to study songwriting, music production and music performance. Following the successful completion of my FE courses, I went on to complete a BA Hons Music Theatre receiving a high 2.1, during my 3 years at the university of central Lancashire, I had the opportunity to perform in a showcase in the West end and perform in industry-ready musicals every year. Although I loved performing My dream was to become a Drama teacher, I wanted to inspire young people through my love of the arts and to share how valuable creativity and the arts is for our confidence, and growth as humans. In 2011 I went on to complete a PGCE in Secondary Drama teaching. I have been a qualified teacher of Drama and music for 7 years. During my time teaching students from 4-18 I have directed many musicals and plays for audiences including leading a school pop choir. I have also appeared in shows for BOP at the Blackpool Grand Theatre. I have extensive experience in teaching the LAMDA qualification, RSL, A level Theatre studies, GCSE Drama, Music and BTEC Performing Arts. I look forward to sharing my experience, passion and enthusiasm for performing theatre and all things dramatic every Saturday
