Guest Autumn days Posted August 12, 2013 Share Posted August 12, 2013 My dd (15) did the advanced version of this and although she was a bit unsure about it beforehand she said that it went OK. She liked the variety of classes and having different teachers and thought that the standard of students was amazing so learned a lot from watching them. If anything, she was very daunted by the talent that she saw and it gave her a good taste of how competitive it will be to get a 6th form place. Although the teachers did give some general feedback, she was hoping for more personal corrections. She said some gave more feedback than others. She thought that the studios were quite small, though, especially given the large number of students in each group and also the building itself is quite run down and it not in the best part of town, which would worry me as a parent of a full time student, especially in the winter when it was dark. I thought that the show at the end was quite slick and it was lovely to see what they had been doing. Overall it was a worthwhile experience but I would be interested to hear other opinions of the course as she hasn't done any summer schools since she was a fair bit younger and isn't sure if this was representative or not! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
