The Performing Arts Faculty at Harrogate Grammar School has been fortunate to have another exceptionally successful year of offers from some of the best universities, conservatoires and theatre companies in the UK.
Jack Hennighan has accepted an offer from RADA to read Technical Theatre and Stage Management, Carla Addyman will be studying at the Central School of Speech and Drama and Amy Brodie will continue her dance training at London Studio Centre in September.
On the back of the whole school production of Les Miserables at Harrogate Theatre, the students of the Performing Arts Faculty have had further success with musical theatre. Alfie Richards successfully auditioned for National Youth Music Theatre and will be performing in ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ at the Other Palace, London in August. Amelia Hope and Megan Dewar will both be performing with Youth Music Theatre UK in venues including Sadler’s Wells. Ed Lee has been fortunate enough to be accepted into the National Youth Theatre. Robert Appleton has been cast as Enjolras in the Batley and Spen Youth Theatre Company production of Les Miserables. The performance has been produced to honour the memory of Jo Cox, and is produced by a team of West End directors and designers.
Amongst others, Christian King and Hugh Lewis have continued to progress with the excellent training delivered by DPTA at HGS and this has enabled them to be offered a number of unconditional offers from a variety of top performing universities.
The students’ success has been achieved through their hard work and commitment throughout their career at Harrogate Grammar School. The Performing Arts Faculty offers Drama and Music through both academic A Level and vocational BTEC pathways with outstanding results in curricular and extra-curricular provision. These courses will continue to run from September 2017. For more information: www.harrogategrammar.co.uk/sixth-form/applying
