Centre Stage for talented Tresham students

Tresham College Kettering Campus

A talented group of students at Tresham College have all been offered places at prestigious drama and theatre schools across the UK.

The future thespians, dancers and performers competed to win places at schools such as Italia Conti in London, the Institute for Contemporary Theatre and the LMA Performing Arts Academy co-owned by Take That Star Robbie Williams.

All have achieved Level 3 qualifications in their chosen specialism, but four of the students chose to take their training to an even higher level with an HNC in Performing Arts. Studying their subject to degree level whilst staying close to home is an increasingly popular choice for young people.

A range of roles

Tresham College, part of The Bedford College Group, run courses for roles in front and behind the scenes: acting, musical theatre, performing arts, stage management and media make-up.

The Performing Arts lecturers at Tresham College have trained in a wide range of new disciplines and have worked as professional performers on stage and screen themselves.

Lecturer Kim Laughton was a West End performer herself and appreciates the hard work involved in such a career:

“It is always so wonderful when our students achieve their goals and their hard work and talent is recognised. We wish them every luck and they must promise to come back and visit once famous.”

said Kim.
