AN UPDATE FROM THE SCHOOL: We have had to pause our face-to-face interactions temporarily, whilst the current social distancing measures are in place. Our next 4 day Acting Intensive and 8 week Acting Masterclass will be scheduled as soon as it is safe to do so. We are currently offering video auditions to those wishing to join our 2 year training and have taken the decision to push back the start of the course to January 2021, to ensure that we are able to deliver the training face to face and in full, without interruption or compromise. We hope that this update will provide some reassurance in these uncertain times and would encourage anyone who is interested in our training or short courses to go ahead and get in touch.

The School was conceived in 2017 by two long serving members of staff of The Poor School, Marcelle Davies & Trudi Rees. Determined to continue the ethos of an exceptional, affordable actor training that is accessible to all, The School is structured over evenings and weekends, thus enabling students to work and earn whilst undertaking a conservatoire-level training. The School auditions and accepts talented students regardless of background and there is no upper age limit.
