Read College in Reading they have an access to the arts fund to help with the fees.
DD is now in the first year at Conti and says she is appreciating just how good the Read training was.

My DD has just started at Kingsclere College 6th form on the musical theatre course and is loving it. I feel like she's getting good training in all three areas of dance, singing and acting and past students have gone on to good drama/dance colleges. We also looked at Arts1.

I don’t know this college personally but it is always sad to hear of a training college in financial trouble - the industry has lost a few in the last year or so and I’m sure this won’t be the last. I feel so sorry for the students. I hope the link works - READ college

Very sad to hear about this. My daughter had an excellent year at Read College.

You are right @Harry2003 .This will not be the last college to flounder ( very much hoping that they might be thrown a lifeline!).
Funding is being cut left, right and centre or access restricted.There will be pressure on the degree courses too and soon, there will only be handful of elite institutions operating. It's such a mess.
