After a much cherished five years spent boarding at the Dragon and after studying Drama, English Literature and Philosophy and Ethics in Sixth Form, I went on to study Drama and Theatre at The University of Lincoln. Specialising in ‘Creative Industries,’ ‘Theatre and Education,’ ‘Scenography and Design,’ and ‘Performance Writing,’ I have learnt the necessary dramaturgical processes required within the arts industry.
My passion for studying the arts was ignited at the Dragon, where I remember drama lessons with Mr Murchie as well as singing in Chamber Choir and Blue Dragons, not to forget Big and Brass band with Mr Smith (I can still hold a tune on my trombone). As many of those at the Dragon may know I have always been one to get involved. I am pleased to say, therefore, I also represent the third-year students at university as their course representative, liaising with staff and support my peers to make our course the best it can possibly be.
I would like to give continuous thanks to all those at the Dragon, Old and New, who have helped me get to where I am today. As they say… ‘Once a Dragon, always a Dragon.’
