Wayward High is a new and exciting film series from NFD Productions showcasing the talents of the cream of Yorkshire’s teenage actors. Intentionally naïve and innocent the series confronts that uneasy transition between childhood & adolescence. The series follows their lives and loves, tears and triumphs with more than a few laughs along the way. Julie or Juliet, the first film in the series set during the school’s production of Romeo and Juliet is about finding love where you least expect it, and that what you want is not necessarily what you need and to never judge by appearances.



Many of our students do gain featured roles on Television and Film but our emphasis and ethos is to give the young people an idea and insight of what this industry has to offer in terms of a career and a hobby.

The acting industry is a very competitive world and so here at NFD we encourage the students to learn about all areas in film making.

We are very proud that many of our students go on and have successful careers in this industry whether it is acting, producing, directing, script writing, camera, lighting, sound, makeup and hair etc.
