|Day School FAQs
Do you offer A-levels?
No. You will be prepared for the London College Diploma of Associate in Music Theatre (validated by Thames Valley University)
Is it true that Kate Winslet went to Redroofs?
Yes. Kate trained at our Day School from the age of 11 to 17. She worked fairly consistently as a child, particularly in her last few years at school. It was through our Agency that she secured her first starring role in a feature film (Heavenly Creatures) which took her to New Zealand for 11 months! From here her career literally took off! Kate was Head Girl in her final year of Redroofs.
We are immensely proud of her!
Do you offer scholarships or bursaries?
We are not currently offering scholarships or bursaries.
Do you have a boarding department?
No—perhaps you should think about Redroofs for 16+.
What is the difference between a BTEC course and the Redroofs Course?
A BTEC is not a professional course of study and although it can be a good way to broaden your outlook, it will serve little use within the industry. Our course aims to lead students directly into the business. If you know you want to be an actor or performer you should be looking to a drama school, not a BTEC.
Do you arrange lodging for students?
Once a student has been offered a place we will issue a digs list. We offer support in trying to secure digs for students but this is ultimately the student's responsibility.
What pastoral care do you offer for a student from home for the first time?
We are very aware that students who may be leaving home for the first time can have difficulty adjusting to a new lifestyle. Equally, it can be daunting for anyone starting a new course in a new place. At the beginning of your course you will attend induction sessions, designed to introduce you to both the other students and the Student Adviser, who is available for practical help and support throughout your time at Redroofs.
I live too far away. Can I join the Agency?
I am a pupil of Redroofs. How do I get into Harry Potter?
The production company visits our school to recruit and all pupils of a suitable age have the chance to audition.

Do you run schools in other areas?
No. Redroofs is an independent school. We do not run a franchise. This ensures that we offer the finest teaching and opportunities but within our own area only.
