Continuing the theatre’s celebrations of their 105th anniversary, the actor was presented with a dedicated seat plaque honouring his remarkable career and connection with this iconic venue.

During the first week of the year our new Year 10s spent the week in intensive rehearsals with industry professionals from across the arts. On the Friday they took a trip over to our second campus The Old Rep to showcase what they’d been working on.
With just 5 days of rehearsal, our students put on a fantastic show! Take a look at some of the highlights here.
Last term, Year 13 Acting students were invited to the RSC for the next step of their Conference Season. The conference included a Film Showcase workshop, so students spent the day working on short films based on the content from the last three RSC conferences. They had the opportunity to work alongside professional actors, directors and a top 360 Filmmaker to create a film, which will be shared online and screened at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in October. During the workshop students had the chance to get to grips with top of the range equipment throughout the workshop, including 360 cameras and Virtual Reality headsets. The students really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to seeing their film being featured on the RSC website.
