Three Pendleton Sixth Form College students are accepted into the Guildford School of Acting. One of the most highly regarded theatre schools in the UK.
Lucca Chadwick-Patel, Owen Bolton and Zachariah Frieze have all been accepted. Into the prestigious school, situated at the University of Surrey.
Lucca said: “I’m absolutely over the moon to have been accepted into such a prestigious school. It was my top choice school and to be given the opportunity to train there for the next three years still hasn’t sunk in.
“I have to say though, none of this would be possible without my fantastic teachers and the whole performing arts department at Pendleton. GSA only accepts around 36 people a year. The fact that three Pendleton students have got in from the first recall of the year really is a credit to the fantastic staff that Pendleton provides.”
Pendleton Performing Arts is nationally acclaimed for their provision. The department maintaining a 100% pass rate. Many of their students go on to study at commended drama and performance schools and they have an impressive cohort of alumni including Michelle Keegan and Dunkirk’s, Tom Glynn-Carney.
Owen said: “I couldn’t believe it when I was given a place at GSA – it is my biggest achievement to date. Being offered a place at a drama school is one thing, but to be offered a place at your dream school is a whole different ball game – it’s been quite a surreal experience.
Zachariah said: “Words can’t describe how I feel about being accepted into The Guildford School of Acting for their prestigious professional BA Musical Theatre course.
Teaching staff at the college are thrilled with the news and are extremely proud of the success of their students.
