  1. I thought it might be worth linking to this thread in case any of the new JA parents have any general questions. It was started a couple of years ago (and some things may have changed due to Covid of course) but could still be useful if anyone wants any advice on uniform/when to expect more information etc...
  2. A huge well done to everyone - it’s all good experience no matter what the result. They’ve all done so well. And well done to all of us for the rearranging of furniture, the filming, the uploading, the refreshing and the waiting! I hope for those who are trying again next year that your children get to experience an in-person audition 🙂 DS has got a Yes for Year 4 🙂
  3. No problem - it's been a long wait but hopefully should be quite soon now! I have a DD who is a JA but this is DS's first time applying too...
  4. Yes you will get an email either way 🙂
  5. DD is at a different centre but we also had to respond by 31 May to confirm whether we wanted to continue next year or not. I don't know how the different audition process this year will affect things but in previous years the results have taken a good while to trickle out even once they start coming - it took a fair amount of time for people applying to all the different centres to hear. We are likely in for a bit of a wait yet.
  6. Thanks both - I agree it’s really nice to hear of people getting in from the wait list and I think - for us anyway - it’s really important to be open about it, as we were proud of DD for getting onto the wait list in the first place even if nothing had come of it (as I’m sure everyone is). I really hope more places become available 🙂
  7. We have one very happy child here tonight - was on SWL but we had an email today saying a place had become available so she's in! Week 3 🙂
  8. Gorgeous Claudia Dean deep blue camisole leotard (£35) and matching skirt (£20). Bought recently second hand for my daughter and it’s immaculate but v sadly too tight so I’m selling it on for the same price I paid for it. It’s a Child Medium, I would say it would fit a petite 8 year old (my daughter (in the pics) is a small 9 and it’s just a little tight especially under the arms).
  9. Existing JAs do not need to re-audition each year - they stay on the programme until the end of Y6 (unless there are any extraordinary circumstances or issues around non-attendance). In Y6 they have to audition for Mids if they want to try for that. Existing JAs had the email this week which asks them to confirm whether they want to take up their place for next year, along with the handbook, uniform list and dates for next session etc. It’s not a case of having to audition or be assessed though. Anything can be worded how to want it to be on social media I guess 🙂
  10. The year before last we heard on 21 June, and we were amongst the last to hear as at that stage it was sent out centre by centre so results had been trickling out for the few days prior to that. I would think it will be a little while yet - if we assume late June then we can only be pleasantly surprised!
  11. Does anyone know if you can see if the videos have been viewed when they were uploaded and shared via OneDrive?
  12. I agree - I don’t think the FAQ have been updated for this year - and I would also note that I think that’s talking more about mid/senior associates. For JA the process was always a bit later in the year, auditioning in person in spring time roughly and results out in June. The website was a bit out of date re then summer intensives as well - they hadn’t updated it to make some changes which were in place for this year specifically. The ‘Apply Now’ button still says they may ask to see some people in person if they are able to. I’m as keen as anyone to know but I think it’s a while off yet, and even then there’s still likely to be a second round in person (altho maybe not if they’ve had less applicants this year?!)
