National Youth Theatre Success The National Youth Theatre has a fantastic reputation for supporting applicants from different backgrounds across the UK, establishing connections and engaging them with other young people and practitioners who are just starting or are already within the industry.

Sam Thompson and Charlotte Ware, two of our current students at Paston Sixth Form College, have recently been auditioned and given places within the prestigious National Youth Theatre. Charlotte said that “Paston has prepared and given me so much confidence in performing and believing in myself”. She is also currently on the reserve list to join Guildford School of Acting in September. Sam Thompson believes that National Youth Theatre “is a great opportunity with a great history which sets you up in the industry”.

Another student here, who was accepted into the National Youth Theatre last year, is Pippa Stebbings. Pippa’s aspiration is to become a cast member on the award winning comedy show Saturday Night Live. The National Youth Theatre has encouraged this by giving her feedback from comedy shows which she has taken part in and by building her confidence within the goals she wants to achieve. Pippa is very keen to study abroad after Paston at New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Company.

Kevin Grieve, Principal, said, “we are very proud of what our students are able to achieve whilst they are studying here at Paston Sixth Form College; and we will do everything in our power to support and encourage their ambitions.”
