5 years ago



School Of the Arts (SOTA) has been identified as a business which demonstrates excellence in it’s field by ‘The Parliamentary Review’ and Director of SOTA, Juliette Caton, is one of a handful of UK business leaders invited to contribute an article to it’s 2019 publication, launched this week.

“It’s a huge honour to be invited to contribute to such a prestigious publication and we are immensely proud to celebrate the quality and pedigree of our wonderful theatre school.’ 

Chaired by Lord Pickles, former Conservative Communities Secretary, and Lord Blunkett, former Labour Home Secretary, The Parliamentary Review is a series of independent publications, which aims to share best practice among policy makers and business leaders.

By combining commentaries from award-winning journalists with innovative thinking from industry experts, and sector specific insight from Secretaries of State, Ministers and MPs, The Parliamentary Review is ‘an indispensable guide, which demonstrates how sector leaders have responded to challenges in the political and economic environment, providing a comprehensive summary of the past year and a reliable template for the year to come’.

SOTA was established in 2005, following Miss Caton’s 20 year career as an actress, with the aim of providing outstanding part-time training in the performing arts to the children and young people of Berkshire. With classes delivered in dance, singing and acting training to 3-18 year olds at SOTA Schools in Reading, Windsor and Bracknell, the school has established a reputation for high quality training and boasts an impressive list of Alumni achievements. 

“Our training is lead by highly qualified and experienced teachers who have professional industry performance experience and specialist teacher training in their fields” explains Juliette. “Many of our pupils have worked on major movies and West End productions and we have a consistent record of our students success in exam results and their gaining places at the countries leading Drama Schools, Dance & Musical Theatre Colleges, and Conservatoires. It is a pleasure to share in my article our successes and to also shed light for Government on the challenges we have faced in 2019 and how we have overcome them.” 

Each year, the release of The Parliamentary Review is marked with a reception at the Palace of Westminster for all the best practice representatives who participate in the publication, which Juliette will be attending this evening.
