24th March 2020
Statement on Coronavirus
We appreciate this is a worrying and anxious time for all our community, as restrictions are introduced to control the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). In line with the latest government guidance, all school buildings are currently closed. School staff are working remotely throughout the Easter vacation in order to keep students up-to-date with plans for the summer term.
The situation is being monitored closely and on a day-by-day basis by the School’s senior team. Current students should continue to check their email regularly for updates from teaching staff and contact their head of course with any queries.
Auditions and interviews
Where possible, plans have been made by teaching staff to conduct auditions and interviews for admission in September 2020 electronically, rather than face-to-face. Please check your emails regularly for any communications from the School’s administration team.
Short courses and Sunday Youth Group
We’ve had to postpone some of our courses which were due to take place over the Easter vacation. Participants should check their emails for updates from the School’s administration team.
Upcoming performances and courses over the summer
Any decision to cancel or postpone an event will be made in consultation with our theatre partners and teaching staff. If you have booked to attend one of our summer performances, please check with the venue box office for the latest updates. Staff from the School are monitoring the evolving situation closely – please continue to check back regularly for updates.
If you are concerned about a member of our community, an upcoming event or performance, please contact us.
