Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update

We appreciate this is a worrying and anxious time for everyone with all the restrictions in place to control the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  In line with the latest government guidance, the school building is now closed and will reopen when we are advised that it is safe to do so. The situation is being monitored closely and on a day-by-day basis by the School’s senior team and we are communicating directly and regularly with all our students, pupils, families and friends.

In the meantime, our teaching staff will continue their successful on-line streaming of lessons and classes from sitting rooms, studies and gardens right across London.

Building Site

Feltham Construction suspended building site operations at ArtsEd on 3 April. Following guidance from the Construction Leadership Council, Feltham have developed a plan that will create a safe working environment in line with industry recommendations. As a result, operations on site will recommence on 4 May. The site will not reopen at full capacity and measures will be in place across the building that will ensure a safe working environment for everyone.

Applications Closed
Applications are now closed for September 2020 entry onto our BA, MA and Foundation courses.  You can still apply for our Part-Time Foundation courses.

We look forward to all being together again.
Until then, keep safe and stay at home.
