Congratulations to Sixth form student Josie Power, who has secured a university place at one of the UK’s most prestigious institutions for Art.

Josie is the current Theatre Studies Ambassador here at the academy and has received an unconditional offer at Goldsmiths, University of London to study BA Drama: Performance, Politics and Society.

During her time at CNS, Josie has participated in school productions including the Shakespeare: 400 Festival and was the assistant director and stage manager of school musical Betty Blue Eyes. She has also led the school’s drama group, The SHED’s Christmas showcase, and its school tutoring programme. Outside of school, Josie has been stage manager and lighting technician on numerous professional theatre company shows.

Goldsmiths is renowned for its strong arts and social sciences offering with several acclaimed artists among its alumni, including Damien Hurst, Lucian Freud, Malcolm McLaren and the Gruff Theatre Company. Josie now plans to join their ranks when she starts at the university this September.
