The Academy provides a platform for young adults wishing to make the step from college to full time performing arts centres or drama schools, running parallel to their sixth form timetable or their years out working. We will give the students the skill set that they need to master the drama school audition, face the industry, be open to professional audition opportunities and secure a place at one of the top theatre schools.

We secure some of the most exciting practitioners and tutors in the country, all of whom are top professionals. We offer the students guidance, mentoring sessions and private tuition to ensure each and every student gets the most that they can from the course and to be the best that they can be. Students have progressed on to schools such as RADA, LAMDA, Guildhall, Arts Ed, GSA, Mountview, Royal Welsh, CSSD, Performers, Bristol Old Vic, Drama Centre, Urdang, ALRA, Rose Bruford, LIPA….

Students have also progressed on to be extremely successful in the industry: alumni include Brenock O’Connor, Madeline Holliday, Rosie Taylor Ritson, Marisa Abela, Amy Leigh Hickman, Toby Murray, Richard Hadfield, Lucy Anderson,  Chioma Uma, Roman Hayeck Green, Oscar Lloyd, Miriam Petche, Hettie Bywater to name but a few.
