STUDENT JOINS NATIONAL YOUTH THEATRE
Catriona Baird, Year 11, has gained a place at the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. She is one of only a small number of successful applicants (around 30) - out of more than 6000.
The National Youth Theatre of Great Britain is a world-leading youth arts organisation, established in 1956 as the world’s first youth theatre and has nurtured the talent of hundreds of thousands of young people over 60 years.
Catriona (central, above) is following illustrious footsteps, as their alumni include Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Orlando Bloom, Ben Kingsley, Hugh Bonneville and many more!
“We are so proud of Catriona. This is a fantastic achievement and a testament to her talent and hard work. It’s been obvious in Drama at Prince Henry’s that she has a future in the theatre and we will continue to watch her career with interest through Sixth Form and beyond.” Said Yvonne Wittering, Area Leader for Drama.
