We believe in giving young people strong foundations in traditional techniques.


We give our performers the tools for outstanding artistic expression, an innovative, imaginative voice and vision for creating fabulous ideas and inventing solutions.


Our performers leave our education with the attitude, confidence and breadth of communication skills needed for life, as well as the real working world of contemporary performance.


As well as having our very own fabulous three-storey studios, a truly passionate team of wonderful Directors, Choreographers and Vocal Coaches, we are all extremely proud to be the area's only OFSTED registered performing arts school.


This means you have complete peace of mind that our programme is of exceptional educational benefit and we adhere to the government's stringent requirements for teaching, learning and safeguarding.


We pride ourselves on offering an unrivalled, all round, individualised arts education to all our pupils.


Training pupils with an unshakeable foundation in strong technique, and the imagination to enable creative vision, is very important to us.


Although our workshops are always fun and friendly, we believe in instilling absolute professionalism and a great work ethic and our tutors hold high expectations for all pupils.   


We train using the latest equipment  and resources, but with an eye on the old fashioned values of actor training; a clear, well controlled voice, an expressive and flexible body, a musical ear, an eye for detailed observation, and a mind that can respond to emotion, feelings and create a believable character.
