CAPA College has had much to celebrate in recent years. With an alumnus in every major West End show, consistent 99% A*-C results, a ranking in the top 1% of all post-16 providers nationally for student progress, awards and accolades from the National Theatre, BBC, Sky TV and Arts Council England and almost 6 applicants for every place, CAPA College is already a tour de force in Arts Education; and it now adds Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ to its list of achievements.
