Welcome to PeNDletoN
Sixth Form ceNtre
The	Performing	Arts	Department	at	Pendleton	Sixth	Form	Centre	has	an	undisputed	reputation	
for	excellent	teaching	and	for	ensuring	that	students	are	given	the	support	and	encouragement	
they	need	to	pursue	their	dreams.

We	aim	to	offer	guidance	and	support	to	enable	all	of	our	students	to	make	a	confident	and	
informed	decision	about	the	next	stage	of	their	career	–	whether	it	is	a	place	at	drama	school,	
university	or	full-time	employment.	Your	time	at	Pendleton	will	be	full	of	challenges	with	plenty	
of	rewards	on	offer	in	an	environment	that	is	both	fun	and	hard	working,	and	with	a	schedule	
that	is	guaranteed	to	stretch	you	beyond	your	wildest	dreams.
