ArtsEd Foundation Students Flying High


ArtsEd's full-time Foundation students have had an exceptional year and many are going on to university or drama school, with several staying on to train at ArtsEd.

“Through much laughter, sweat and determination my foundation group kept focused and worked diligently all year, achieving great success in their auditions. It was very rewarding to watch the students' talent blossom as their understanding, confidence and ability grew throughout the course….  it was a win win situation for everyone!”

Heather Robbins, Head of Musical Theatre Foundation Course
