“2017 has been an in­cred­i­ble year so far: We have opened state-of-theart new fa­cil­i­ties, wel­comed the likes of Har­vey We­in­stein, Sir Ken­neth Bran­nagh, Sally Wain­wright and Roger Deakins to de­liver mas­ter­classes and our stu­dents have once again done us proud win­ning a num­ber of high pro­file awards in­clud­ing the Short An­i­ma­tion BAFTA for the fourth year in a row.”
