What says..

Everyone praised the ‘positive competitiveness’ the school fosters, and insisted that no matter who got which part, ‘we’re in it together, we work as a team.’ Chances to shine abound. ‘If you audition for a part and you don’t get it, you know there’ll always be another opportunity,’ a level-headed teenager told us. ‘We offer developmental opportunities throughout the year,’ confirmed the head, ‘and parents will see their children do any number of things.’ ‘Watching your children in demonstrations of work is amazing; you can see them and their cohort growing in confidence,’ agreed a parent.
