My DD is auditioning for Sept 17 entry this year and it was on her list to view/audition but she won't be viewing/auditioning now - what a shame, if they had made a real programme/documentary about what goes on in life for the real students I think it could have been a really great show.
My dd auditioned there a couple of years ago...it really is NOT like that in real life...
She found the staff to be very nice, helpful and professional, and the facilities are lovely.
She was offered a scholarship there too.
Please do go along and make your own mind up. What you see on the TV show is purely fabricated.
I don't know why they have made the show as it does them no favours at all.
My dd did not go there in the end, she got funding elsewhere, but I would say don't write it off. It cant be all bad if The Stage paper offers a scholarship there every year!
My DS auditioned there this year and loved it, he was really torn between a few colleges and this was one.
The principles were really approachable, he found the teachers fantastic, great studios, he felt really at home there.
The show I feel is a total fabrication and just drama so please don't right them off as a school, such a shame.
It's Just TV.
