The first step on the road to becoming a professional actor.

Our aim has been to create a drama school for 16-18 year olds with a professional ethos and rigorous approach.

The course prepares you to think as a professional actor and equips you with the skills to progress to drama school and into the industry. You are taught by expert staff and you benefit from the wide professional networks that those staff bring. The core of the course is the acting class which runs over the two years and takes you through the approaches of Stanislavski, Uta Hagen and Meisner. Staff support you to develop a personal acting process, using techniques from all the approaches. Voice and movement classes support the development of your acting instrument and specialised units, such as Acting for TV and Comedy, develop your skills. The course works towards productions in year 2. These are professionally staged and you collaborate with working directors, designers and production staff.
