  1. Hello Anyone applied for this in the past? We will be applying this year as DD starts as a SA in the autumn and this means long long journeys - far longer than to our MA and JA centre. We’ll be travelling about 168 miles (I think the cut off is 151?) Is it easy to sort out? Grateful for any advice or hints.
  2. I’ve only ever heard reasonably positive things about YDA and we know one student there They are very happy there
  3. Exactly we have heard about students who had absolutely no clue then got a letter telling them they were to leave where is the compassion or mental wellbeing in that? utterly appalling in my humble opinion But we know of some who have gone on to thrive at Hammond etc i wish anyone assessed out all the luck in the world and a big hug as it must be awfully stressful
  4. I’ve commented below but wish you all the luck Very pleased we didn’t get a place at WL with hindsight due to they way they treat students
  5. Feel so desperately sad for you and your child. I really question some decisions on assessing out of vocational schools but with no or little feedback as to why. If it’s something that cannot be changed like something physical like feet or turnout etc then why not say? I’d see a specialist dance physio for advice and I’d insist on reasons from school as to why she’d been assessed out. These children give up home friends school to go away and are sometimes treated like something just thrown away. What about their mental wellbeing. Schools have a responsibility. See someone like Emma Northmore for further advice good luck don’t give up and remember she must have been worthy of a place 2 years ago. look after yourself too xx
  6. Yes it does happen we know someone who got an MA place from SWL and we know a little girl who got a summer course place at WL from SWL because someone dropped out last minute through injury
  7. Thank you very nuch
  8. Any idea of the times of the SA classes in Covent Garden on a Saturday please? Also what is the uniform? We will be supplied with all the info we need in due course but I’m just trying to plan ideas for travel to London....... thanks in advance
  9. It does sometimes happen so fingers crossed
  10. Our DD got a yes for SAs in London hope you all hear very soon
