Why did you choose Reigate College ?

I loved the vibe when I walked through the front gates and I just knew it was where I wanted to be. I also loved all the facilities – from the Dance Studio, with a whole mirrored wall and ballet bars to the Dramatic Arts Centre Studio and Rispoli Theatre with access to both professional stage lighting and sound systems.

How and why did you choose which subjects to study?

I chose to study the ‘triple’ in Performing Arts (the equivalent of three A Levels) as performing has always been a passion of mine and I knew it was what I wanted to do as a career. I love the fact that at Reigate you can focus exclusively on Performing Arts and have access to the disciplines of Dance, Drama, Singing and Musical Theatre.

How did you find the move from school to College?

I felt much freer compared to school, as teachers are addressed by their first names, and you get treated more like an adult.

What are your plans for the future?

I’m going to study Performing Arts at Laine Theatre Arts. I’d like to appear on the West End stage and become a household name for Musical Theatre. Eventually I’d like to give back to the industry and help other performers progress into the industry.
