Taking to the stage

Huge congratulations to Upper Sixth students Cat and Lowenna who are celebrating after both successfully earning places at Guildford School of Acting.

Ben Oldfield, Director of Drama, said, ‘It’s wonderful that these two talented students have achieved such a remarkable feat. Drama schools are notoriously hard to get into and they very rarely consider school leavers. Cat and Lowenna obviously impressed them with their skill and their passion for the art form. They have both been stalwarts of the drama department during their time at Truro School, playing many memorable roles, and they have contributed massively to the success of countless projects through their energy and commitment. I am delighted that Cat and Lowenna are moving on to the next stage of their careers in the theatre and I look forward to seeing what they do next: it’s bound to be exciting!’

Cat commented, “I couldn’t be more delighted to have a place at Guildford School of Acting come September. I can say hand on heart that there is genuinely no way I would have achieved this were it not for the incredible help and support given to me by Truro School, especially from Ben Oldfield and Jo Egar in the drama department. I am so thankful for the opportunities that Truro School has offered me and I cannot wait to see where these experiences take me next. Thank you so much.”

Lowenna said: “I am incredibly excited to be going to drama school in September, thanks to lots of hard work and a massive amount of support from the school and the drama department. I’ve had countless brilliant opportunities during my time at Truro School to allow my passion and craft to flourish, for which I am incredibly grateful.”

Congratulations girls, we look forward to following your careers in the theatre, well done!

You can also catch Lowenna and Cat performing a section of Blood Wedding, their A-Level performance piece, in this year’s virtual speech day.
