Jessica – Level 3 Dance Student

“RuTC was one of the few colleges that offered the course I wanted to study. The Dance classes are well run and the support from my teachers is excellent. Being able to dance everyday is great & my biggest achievement so far has been performing in the College’s Christmas show. The careers team helped me to think about what I want to do after Richmond”

Iola – Level 3 Acting

“I chose RuTC as it offered the course I was interested in, students & staff were friendly, and the environment & location suited to my needs. I enjoyed having independence & leaning valuable skills for applying to universities. I’ve received so much support & encouragement from my tutor, Kelly. I’m greatful for her enthusiasm & the care she took to ensure I was on track & succeeding. I hope to study acting at the Institute for Contemporary Theatre & hope to make it in film & TV. Embrace your independence & work hard for yourself. Make yourself proud”


Lockdown 2020

During the 2020 lockdown we had to move to online learning which, for performing arts, was a big change. We could no longer put on big shows in our new theatre. But as creatives we adapted.
