Conservatoire drama school set up by long-serving staff of
The Poor School

The unique nature of our excellent and robust acting training is that we value the individual and nurture their particular talent. We strive, within each intake, to offer training to the most diverse group possible. The combination of different ages, backgrounds and life experiences offers a wonderfully creative training environment for all, which reflects the realities of the industry.

Drama school patron, Joanna Lumley
PATRON: Joanna Lumley, OBE
The School’s potential contribution to the acting profession is of incalculable importance. People from all walks of life whose circumstances have denied them access to other drama schools have every possible chance of flourishing in this social melting pot, particularly those from working class backgrounds. The School embraces all-comers and that is its great strength. I am delighted to be a patron of this unique establishment.
