Achieving this Week – Friday 17 November 2017


Congratulations to…

Lower Sixth Former Lucy, one of 30 young dancers selected from all over the UK to join the National Youth Dance Company (NYDC) – hosted at Sadler’s Wells – during 2017-18. Under the guidance of Guest Artistic Director Sharon Eyal, one of the most exciting female choreographers working today – the company will premiere its new work, ‘Used To Be Blonde’, in April next year, followed by a UK national tour. The dancers are mentored during four intensive residencies over the year, in order to create, rehearse and develop the new piece. Throughout the dancers’ time with NYDC they are given a unique insight into the dance profession, gaining skills and techniques that open up career possibilities. Many congratulations Lucy.

First Former Evie and Third Former Eliza, who took part in the Surrey cross country relay competition held at Stoke Park during half term. Each athlete had to run 2,000m; as a team they performed really well and were placed third overall.

Second Former Elle and Third Former Emma, who have been selected for the Netball Development Academy and Third Former Eliza, selected for the Surrey Academy. Well done girls on this wonderful achievement.
