Grace described her time at Sunderland College as very supportive, creative and hands-on.
She said:
“I chose to study the BTEC in Performing Arts as I wanted a creative route to studying. I really loved the practical approach the course offered, especially the workshops which gave a real insight into how the industry works for West End actors and dancers.
“I’ve had an amazing time meeting new people and making new friends and I’m looking forward to taking everything I’ve learned at Sunderland College and applying it at University.”
Grace is now progressing to York St John University to study Drama and Theatre.
