Mia Collinson a former Graham School student studied a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts.

"I chose performing arts as I love dancing and it had always been my ambition to be a Dance Teacher. I particularly enjoyed the course as we were involved in a lot of performances. The Tutors are great and really understanding I have also made a lot of new friends. I have now gone on to do an Apprenticeship with Twilight Productions, a local dance company, and I am teaching dance, something that I have always wanted to do."
