Re: What funding could I receive?

Is there any help for someone who is leaving at 16. My ds is leaving in September to start a 3 yr Diploma. From what we've seen so far, you need to be 18 to apply for anything. :?

Re: How soon do they let you know?

Thank you all. So excited for him. 2dancersmum - thats so nice to hear and i'm hoping he'll be the same. Year 11 certainly is busy and you're right, we dont see much of him at the moment. We just had that feeling with it being quite a small school that he would be looked after there. Suesmith - that...

Re: How soon do they let you know?

Thats what i particularly like about it. If my ds was offered a place he would be leaving home at just 16 and that frightens me but you had the feeling that they would be looked after there :D

Re: How soon do they let you know?

Hi mogs - yes they did spend time together! My dd was last to audition in the end as she was staying on for classes - did he enjoy it? He had such a great day. Think they got on well. He commented on her dancing and said how good she was. He enjoyed the classes again today and can't get over how fr...

Re: How soon do they let you know?

His dad took him :lol: Really strange not being there with them and its been the longest day waiting for news. Main thing is he enjoyed it and felt he did his best. Suesmith-i think my ds may have spent some time with your dd this afternoon. He was speaking to a local girl who goes there part time :D

Re: How soon do they let you know?

Oh thats good news. At least they're not keeping them waiting too long. Its the only place he's applied for. He's only 15 (16 this month) and we didnt realise that these such places did btec courses #-o It's only that hes always been interested in Conti's and saw it on their website. I wish we had l...

Re: How soon do they let you know?

Thank you all so much for replying. Ive tried to speak to the school today but am waiting for someone to get back to me. I'm hoping it is just a date that the school has said-not the actual date they are paying it but they are going in October(next school year-sorry oops!) and have stated they are o...

Re: Would anyone talk to me about the Italia Conti Audition?

It's a lot isnt it. We were asked to do 3 dances - a tap, ballet and jazz (each around a minute long). They did originally say 2 monologues so I'm going to check with them again or maybe get him to know two - just in case :shock: I remember seeing a forum on their website where pupils post their adv...

My son is applying for the Btec course but his audition isn't until jan. They told us on the open day that they only have to do one monologue but still 3 dances-each about a minute long!i thought it may be less for the Btec and asked if it was the same and they said yes. It's in case anyone shows re...

Re: Would anyone talk to me about the Italia Conti Audition?

Did you go to the open day? They covered lots of questions then and we had the chance to question pupils. Found out more from them actually - they were really open and friendly. When is your audition?
