Covid-19 Updates

Autumn Term 2021

There are no longer restrictions on the approach to teaching and learning in Higher Education (HE) providers as a result of Covid-19. However, it is advised that HE providers continue to conduct risk assessments for their particular circumstances. 

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School is continuing with proportionate control measures to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission to the lowest reasonable practicable level. The School’s autumn 2021 information and guidance document is available to download (PDF, 436 KB).


The School’s Covid-19 supervisor, Alice Dillon, can be contacted via [email protected].

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
