Cotes Heath to the Capital

Alexandra Westwell

Cotes Heath student Alexandra Westwell has secured a place at the prestigious London Arts Academy “Arts Ed” for a three year BA degree course in Acting for Film and Television. From over a thousand applicants, she was selected as one of only 13 girls for Septembers intake at this prestigious school whose president hails as Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber. Eighteen year old Alex has always been educated locally starting at All Saints School Standon and then Walton Priory with every Saturday morning spent at Stones very own “Stagecoach” school for performing arts. It was the strong drama section at Alleynes High school which really took her interest and she was a regular performer in many school productions.

In 2012 she secured the lead role in the TDA productions of Beauty and the Beast at Stokes Victoria Hall and she is currently finishing a successful musical theatre course at “The Academy for Theatre Arts” at Newcastle under Lyme College. Is she Stones upcoming star of stage and screen?
