Post-16 College

BDC Theatre College

BDC Theatre College is a private specialist performing arts school based just outside Bath. BDC offers a vocational training course that prepares students to take the next step towards a career in the performing arts industry.   Alongside foundation training, the course includes a BTEC level 3 extended diploma in performing arts (equivalent to three A levels).


We have seen great success in recent years with 100 percent of students that auditioned last year going on to secure places at some of the country’s leading drama, musical theatre and dance schools including: Laine Theatre Arts, Urdang Academy, Bird College, GSA (Guildford School of Acting) and Mountview Academy of Performing Arts.


We run holiday programmes throughout the year from one-to-three day workshops. This is an ideal way for students to work with faculty members, see our facilities, and learn more about us prior to the audition process. You may also be interested in coming to see some of our in-house performances.
