My DS went to PA college and did a Diploma at age 17 with no A levels - went on to his first professional job then COVID struck and is now at UAL doing a Degree in Film so I definitely think that A levels are not the be all and end all. My DD is going to do a BTEC in MT this September I also feel th...
My DS went to a PA school in London to do a level 6 diploma at 17 with just GCSEs - graduated at 20 went straight into a UK tour, when Covid hit he applied and got into a Uni (UAL) and is now studying Film.

Hi. My dd did a panto with Jordan productions a few years back. They were a great company to work with, very caring to their juveniles. If I remember correctly the rehearsal period was quite intense.

If you like exploring google "London for free" gives you loads of interesting options, London Museum, British Museum, Docklands Museum are all free, plus the more popular ones. Brick Lane, Camden Market are great for browsing. I have a English Heritage pass and love wondering round the gar...

My dd is at full time PA school, she was really sporty, very academic, offered 2 scholarships elsewhere plus place in a grammar school but turned them down and loves it 100%. My ds had the same opportunity but didn't take it and regrets it a little now. Pm me if you've any questions. A hard decision!
Thank you so much for bringing this point up, so true we couldn't apply for a DADA for my ds as no point as our income was going onto the limit but they don't take our outgoings into account - we have two children going into performing arts,and we haven't even started paying our mortgage yet as our ...
