Her mother, Nadine, writes:
“Earlier in the year Arabella auditioned for the British Music Theatre and was offered a place in one of their summer productions at The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth.
Following this achievement I can also tell you that this morning we received the news that Arabella has been offered a place in the prestigious National Youth Theatre which boasts such luminaries as Daniel Craig, Daniel Day-Lewis, Idris Elba, Colin Firth, Derek Jacobi, Ben Kingsley, Helen Mirren and Kate Winslet to name but a few.
This is not only a testament to her own efforts and determination, but a reflection upon the first rate facilities and education offered by the dedicated and first rate teachers at the school.
Thanks you all for helping her along this path.”
There was also special thanks extended to Mr Bullough, Miss Uttley, Mr Howard and Mr Williams.
