Chetwynde pupil secures place at LIPA

Congratulations to Chetwynde School pupil Zofia who has secured a place at the prestigious Liverpool School of Performing Arts which is one of the top colleges for theatre, music and performance in the country.

She will join the sixth form at LIPA, which was set up by Sir Paul McCartney, to continue the next stage in her training after her GCSEs at school.

Her tutor Katherine Parkinson said LIPA was her first-choice and will give Zofia the chance to work with all the top teachers and directors in the industry when she starts in September.

“I’m sure everyone who has taught Zofia knows she has always been destined for the stage but to gain a place at such a young age is a fantastic achievement,” she said. “Her hard work has definitely paid off for the next stage in her training. She actually got into all of the colleges she has auditioned for but was keeping everything crossed she would get into her first choice.”

Zofia played the role of Belle in the school’s recent production of Beauty and the Beast.
