The teenager — who has already performed in a number of West End shows — is “thrilled” to be heading to the Hertfordshire school: “I still can’t quite believe it. I know I am going to receive amazing training and a really good education there.”

Jeremiah’s parents, Dayne and Vanessa, are equally excited for the opportunity coming their son’s way: “As a family, we are so proud of Jeremiah’s achievements. We are going to miss him not being around but we know he will receive excellent training alongside a high standard of education while being surrounded by like-minded people.”

The teenager started performing at the age of five, before making his stage debut three years later as young Simba in the Lion King.
