About Us

“The future of this country's theatre tradition depends on centres of excellence such as ArtsEd.” – Andrew Lloyd Webber, President

Welcome

We’re here to help you set the world alight.

At ArtsEd, our highly skilled, committed staff share their expertise and their passion for performance with pupils, sixth formers, undergraduates and postgraduates. We do this with energy, verve and joy in a uniquely warm and friendly atmosphere.

Making it in the performing arts isn’t easy. It takes guts, determination and ambition. Not to mention the small matter of talent. But if you believe you have these qualities and genuinely want to succeed, ArtsEd will give you an amazing experience and a formidable start. Our close links with the industry mean you’ll be learning from the best, from people who really know what it takes.

We constantly strive to ensure that inclusivity and diversity sit at the heart of everything we do. We are a founding partner of the Diversity School Initiative, which addresses under-representation and the lack of diversity in performing arts education, and we recently won an Industry Minds award for our approach to mental health awareness, support and action.

This year, we were awarded TEF Gold, the highest rating from the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework and, for the third year running, we were ranked in the top-five drama schools for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey.

The ArtsEd Day School & Sixth Form enjoys a consistent position as the most academically successful performing arts school in the UK. All pupils are inspired by a strong sense of family and shared purpose to achieve their full potential right across the curriculum. And outside of school hours, we offer a wide range of evening, weekend and holiday courses for all ages and abilities.

For 100 years, ArtsEd has inspired confidence, nurtured talent and achieved results. Do you want to know what that looks like?
