AN UPDATE FROM THE SCHOOL: Whilst the current restrictions are in place, we have had to pause our face-to-face interactions temporarily and are also looking to reschedule our next 4 day Acting Intensive and 8 week Acting Masterclass, that were due to take place in the Summer term. However, we are currently offering video auditions as an option to those wishing to join the 2 year training and, as it stands, we have every hope that we will be able to go ahead with this in October, as planned. We are, however, very aware that the timeframe for the current restrictions is as yet unknown and we are therefore putting contingency plans in place to enable us to push back the start of the course, to January if necessary, to ensure that we are able to offer the training 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.
