This proved to be a fantastic opportunity to allow the cast to shine before opening night- and what an opening night it was!

Oxford University Success for Lipson Co-operative Academy Student

Lipson Co-operative Academy could not be prouder of their recent Alumni, David Howard Baker who, following his foundation degree, has been accepted to read Music at Oxford University in September 2017. 

David was one of the first students to have benefited directly from Lipson’s specialist tutor groups alongside free tuition on several instruments as part of their outstanding music provision at Lipson.
