Travelling to Audition

We encourage you to attend a live audition if it is safe to do so. Please refer to the latest Covid-19 travel guidelines from the UK government if you intend to travel from overseas.

If you wish to submit a recorded audition, please note the following:

  • Please ensure that you select ‘RECORDED’ in the audition venue field of the application form.
  • Instructions about how to upload your video will be sent to you after the application closing date.
  • The deadline for all uploaded audition videos is Friday 28 October 2022.

Submitting a recorded audition will not impact on the result of your application. However, attending in person means that you will gain the full benefit of a visit to the school.
