Performing

At Spotlight we don’t take exams, but place our focus on exciting stage productions and performances to help pupils showcase their talents and skills.

Our shows are devised and written for Spotlight so we can include every member, regardless of age, ability or experience. It’s exciting and hard work , but we wouldn’t have it any other way. This ethos has remained throughout the years.
