“Coming to West Thames College was the best thing I did. I’ve had the opportunity to perform at the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith and in lots of plays at college too. The teachers are great – they’re really supportive and the training is really professional.” Josephine has just been awarded a place at the prestigious National Youth Theatre.
