Jessica, a talented ex-pupil from Ferndown Middle School has been awarded funding to attend a 3 year BA (Hons) in Musical Theatre at the Arts Educational School London.
Jessica was chosen out of 4,500 applicants for only 50 places on their degree course after successfully completing the Foundation Course this year. The elite course covers singing, dancing and acting; encompassing one to one singing lessons, song workshops, ensemble classes alongside jazz, ballet and tap sessions, voice and speech work, acting for the stage and film.
The Arts Educational School London, whose Principal is Andrew Lloyd-Webber, provides the very best musical theatre training in the country, now in its third consecutive year of students graduating with Agents.
“Hampreston was the place where I found my voice. I was chosen to sing in a small group at the musical event where all the local schools came together, and this is where my passion really started. Thank you SO much, words cannot express how much of a difference it makes just to know there are people to support you. It has certainly made a huge difference in helping me to achieve my dream.”
Jessica has previously performed at various charity events such as Music4Meningitis at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) and for Save The Children.
