Year 13 RBSF Student Accepted into Highly Acclaimed Drama School, Italia Conti

Year 13 Rivington and Blackrod Sixth Form student Joshua Nicolls is set to embark on an exciting journey in September as he has been accepted into the prestigious London drama school, Italia Conti.

Joshua auditioned for a place earlier this year, where he faced a day of auditions in London, participating in acting and musical theatre assessments that tested his skills and determination. Despite the challenging experience, he approached the day with enthusiasm, impressing the panel of tutors with his ability to perform under pressure.

Speaking of his achievement, Joshua commented, "I am absolutely over the moon to have been offered a place at Italia Conti, and I cannot wait to start training."

Italia Conti has earned its place as one of the leading performing arts institutions in the country, known for its commitment to providing comprehensive training across various disciplines. With an international reputation for excellence, the school equips students like Joshua with the skills and versatility needed to thrive in the theatrical profession.

Ms J Stephens, Head of Rivington and Blackrod Sixth Form, added, "The Sixth Form and Drama department are incredibly proud of Josh’s achievement. We know he was born to do this, and we cannot wait to see his theatrical journey."

Well done, Joshua. We can’t wait to see you shine as you begin your exciting next chapter.
