The Sixth Form are very pleased to share the success of Year 13 student Jessica Boyd, who you may remember recently starred as a rather "kooky" Grandma Addams in the musical of The Addams Family.
Jess has been sucessful in securing a place on the (BA) Acting and Contemporary Theatre course (Loughton Campus) from East 15 Acting School. This school is a branch of the University of Essex and was ranked "No. 1 for Drama in 2022" (Guardian University Guide) and have a top 10 overall student satisfaction score from the 2022 National Student Survey. It is also ranked as the 5th best drama school in the UK by Acting in London, so it is a huge accolade to have been selected.
I have been so lucky to be accepted into this course which only offers 17 places per year, despite the tens of thousands of students who apply, I am so excited to start this journey and receive excellent teaching and extensive training from this school.
We are extremely proud of Jess for getting through a gruelling interview and audition to achieve her place at East 15, we hope that she will come back to TGS in the future to share her experiences of the acting school with future students. All the best Jess, we look forward to seeing you on screen and in the theatre in years to come!
