Lewis Doley

Progressing from a Level 2 to a Level 3 Diploma in Performing Arts, Lewis was awarded a triple merit. After a challenging audition, he was offered a place at The Poor School, an acting school in Kings Cross, London.
His long-term career aim is to be a successful actor.

“I’m so glad I chose Halesowen College. The tutors are fantastic and really helped me to develop my acting technique. I truly believe I owe the whole Drama department a huge debt for all the time and effort they took to train me.”
