Stacey Taylor and Julie Taylor, principals at Taylor’s Theatre Academy and Taylors Theatre College, said they decided to open the college to support creative children across Bolton.

Stacey said: “We knew we had to do something to support our creative children in Bolton.

“At Taylor’s, 417 Crompton Way, we introduced our BTEC Level 3 in Performing Arts last year, and successfully enrolled 13 students.

“Our first years are currently studying Monday to Wednesday between 9am and 4pm.

“At Taylor’s Theatre College we offer a BTEC Level 3, with an option to take a musical theatre pathway or a dance pathway.

“The courses are fully funded for students aged between 16 and 18.”

Stacey said as well as teaching students, they work to give them some of the best opportunities.

She said: “Some of our students are currently working a lot on TV including on Waterloo Road, Coronation Street, Brassic and more.
