FUTURE Brad Pitts and Jennifer Lawrences took to the stage at Fowey Community College for the school's adaptation of The Demon Headmaster.

The pupils from Years 8, 9 and 10 have just completed their first year of studying for a London Academy of Music and Drama (LAMDA) qualification. Head of drama Louisa Hall said: "We're skipping Grade 3 and going straight for the bronze award, which is just a few UCAS points off a GCSE."

Year 7 and 8 pupils gained 8 merits and 16 distinctions in their first set of exams in July, and the performance raised funds to help meet the costs of the extracurricular course.

"I'm very proud of the work the students have achieved," Miss Hall said.

"I'm looking forward to working with them on the next step of their LAMDA bronze award, which is a very different challenge: A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen."
