It certainly didn’t take Tilita Whittick Knight, better known as Tilly to us all at Deyes High, long to grace our TV screens.  What a delight! After only just leaving 6th form, Tilly landed the role of Louise, Anthony Walker’s girlfriend in Jimmy McGoverns ‘Anthony’. A touching portrayal of the life that he should have had .

Tilly studied A’level Drama and Theatre Studies, Art and Photography and Media Studies at 6th form and chose Deyes High because she felt a sense of belonging not only with her friends and fellow pupils but also her teachers. Always a creative and talented student Tilly could be found  on stage refining her craft from creating outrageously complex character’s for devising projects to comically ignorant ones like Marlene in Top Girls. Her creativity and versatility knew no bounds.

Tilly was a popular and well liked student by all and she relished in learning new skills.  Always smiling and kind to others she  certainly blossomed whilst at Deyes High.

We are not surprised that Tilly has made it to the big screen as this, as well as the stage, is where she belongs. We are all very proud of her and cannot wait to see what she does next.  The stage is yours Miss Whittick Knight.
