Preparing for a new start

The dust seems to scarcely be settling from Showcase and we're in final preparations to start back with the class of 2012/13.  Anyone who thinks we get the summer off is wrong :)

We've been lucky enough to have to lay on extra auditions this year to see everyone, and it looks like a record year for the college with at least 16 students studying with us.  We can't wait to start working with all of them!

We've also had a very inspiring meeting with our Board of Trustees who oversee everything that college does.  They're a fantastic bunch of people - I should introduce you...

David Ashley (Head of 1st Year and Deputy Head of Music, Arts Ed)
Elizabeth Flintoff (Director of Outreach, Watermill Theatre)
Nick Flintoff (Creative Technical Associate, National Theatre Studio)
Roger Missing (Owner, Missing Link DVD)
Anne Munn (Chief Executive, The Mobility Trust)

Between the Board, Helen and myself, there are some really exciting plans in place for the future of the college, including some great fundraising events which I will be blogging/tweeting about soon, so keep up to date and come and visit us at any of the events whenever you can!

Let's see how many futures we can change this time around...
