Congratulations go to our Year 11 student, Ruby McGivern, who has gained a place with the National Youth Theatre, following auditions with 6,000 other hopefuls nationally. Ruby received 1 of the 500 places available in just over 40 venues throughout the UK and will now remain a member of NYT until she is 26. She can then audition for any of their productions put on at major theatres & get help, advice & guidance from industry professionals. Famous actors who started their careers in NYT include Dame Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Orlando Bloom, Catherine Tate, Hugh Bonneville and Matt Smith.

When Ruby was in Year 8, she played Jane in a UK touring production of Mary Poppins and has also played several roles in amateur productions, including Summer Hathaway in our very own production of School of Rock! Congratulations Ruby and we hope to see you in an NYT production, in the near future!
