Re: Yyr 12 on MT course - what sort of things to do

I'm a bit confused - from what you say your daughter started Year 12 doing just acting, has transferred to MT but her forte is acting? Does she now want to audition for acting or MT post 18? I think you'll get more traffic if you clarify which she wants to go for and therefore what sort of support s...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

Ooh, I’m really glad this thread has been started, I’ve been watching the 2019 one for a while, and now it’s our turn :shock: DD is just finishing first year at sixth form and we’ve started doing some research in where to go next for a musical theatre BA.

Re: Help - disastrous Easter school experience!

I think possibly it's not that the course was wrong for your DD, OR that she wasn't really up to the required standard, but the timing of this course coinciding with greater body-consciousness/teenage insecurity generally. It's good she saw it through though. She can't have been the only non-sylph-l...

Re: changing track at 17 (Y13/repeating Y12) options? Cambs area

But Hitchin is on a train route from Cambridge. Fast train is 34 mins . With a YP railcard it would be about £18 a day assuming she travels peak time in the morning, but I imagine you can get a season ticket.

Also if you can commute to MK couldn't you also commute to Emil Dale?

Re: Looking ahead and being realistic!

Trinity Laban and GSA would be good options as fully funded. Trinity Laban probably also commutable, although to be honest I suspect by 18 they will want to live independently.
