We are very pleased to announced that Tom Bulley, a 2020 St Michael’s leaver, has been awarded an Honorary Drama Scholarship by Sevenoaks School.
Tom contributed a huge amount to the Drama Department during his time at St Michael’s and is very deserving of this title.
Commenting on his new honour, Tom said: “My love for drama began in Year 4 when my close friend Sam and I auditioned for a duologue; we had so much fun producing it. From then on, I took every opportunity I was given: auditioning for school plays, performing more duologues, and with the help of my amazing drama teacher Mr Powell, landed myself performing art scholarships at various schools.
“I pursued the scholarship at St Michael’s and continued to work hard, performing in musical theatre and drama productions, playing Emil in Emil and The Detectives and beginning to get involved in the technical side of theatre. At Sevenoaks School I will continue to pursue my passion for performing, while looking at different aspects of theatre.
“I feel honoured to have this opportunity and am determined to make the most of it.”
And praising Tom’s achievement, Head of Drama at St Michael’s, Mr Powell said: “I’m so delighted to hear that Tom has been honoured with a Drama Scholarship at Sevenoaks. He proved himself to be a splendid scholar here at St Michael’s, especially with his lead role in Emil and the Detectives. His passion, drive and determination have led him to excel in drama and achieve this worthy accolade- well done Tom.
