East London to get new 'Brit School'

A NEW east London media, arts and fashion academy will help 16-19 year-olds from disadvantaged backgrounds, its organisers claim.

The state of the art Dv8 Academy in Waltham Forest, already dubbed the "Brit School of East London", will offer digital media, music technology, event management, performing arts and will have a cutting-edge curriculum and access to some of the leading organisations within relevant sectors.

At the helm of the academy, which will open its doors this September, is newly appointed principal Sacha Corcoran – who received an MBE in 2014 for her services to education as a deputy director for learners and partnerships at City and Islington College.

The academy grew out of the Dv8 Training service which already has a reputation for delivering courses in the creative industries, and producing high calibre students who go on to enjoy great success.

Managing director Alexis Michaelides said: “We believe that young people need a place where they can develop their creativity, ideas and skills.

“The media and creative industries are a massive sector for the UK and we produce some of the most talented music producers, fashion designers, filmmakers and event producers in the world.

"We aim for the Dv8 Academy to be the place for young people to start their amazing journey.”
