The A Word

Year 4 student stars in BBC drama

Last week we enjoyed watching Ibrahim Ismail (Year 4) perform on stage in the Croston Theatre and this week we are excited to announce that Ibrahim is to star in the BBC drama, ‘The A Word’. The flagship drama (which air’s tonight) is a new six-part series about an autistic child, Joe, and how his family deal with his autism.

Ibrahim plays the role of Ramesh who is a school friend of Joe.


He said “I would love to get a chance to act in a film and become famous. It is very difficult to get selected after an audition but you have to keep trying your best. I was really excited to be picked!”

Well done, Ibrahim!
