"If I were to give advice to others considering performing arts, I’d say be yourself, don’t worry about what others think. Being different makes you unique. Work hard and take every opportunity that comes your way and don’t stress out – enjoy your time learning and believe in yourself."

Tommy Warner

"I loved Lewisham, as they did plays that were similar and the same standard as those at drama school, which made the transition to higher education much easier."

"One of the things the College has taught me is to set my goals much higher because you never know what you can achieve until you try. Once I have some experience, my plan is to set up my own theatre company and work with people from different cultures around the world."

"The staff here have shown me how to get better and improve my work – and I’ve already started seeing a difference, even after only 2 months. We also get amazing professional work placements – like the Plague Event at the National Maritime Museum."

"I chose to study at Lewisham Southwark College because it was the only College nearby that specialised in Performing Arts. The course included Drama, dancing and singing, all of which I was keen to pursue."
