Huge congratulations to Year 8 pupil Oakley Tancred who has won the prestigious ‘Terry Mills Young Singer of the Year’ award at the annual Vanessa Awards.

Oakley has already appeared in a number of Drama productions at Worth including playing one of the lead roles in Frozen in February. He was selected for the Vanessa Award out of 560 students at the British Theatre Academy.

He then got to sing live at the awards ceremony in front of an audience of about 2,000 people. The Vanessa Awards are run by the British Theatre Academy to celebrate successes of its members.

Well done Oakley, this is a fantastic achievement.

Congratulations also to follow Worth pupil Jessica Lynch who was nominated for Best Musical Theatre Actor.
