I owe a huge portion of myself to Itchen in discovering my enthusiasm for acting. At college I really discovered what my interests are, what career I want to pursue and who I really am. Itchen College is a nurturing and fully supportive environment to learn in; if you're willing to give 100%, Itchen College will give you double.
