The Arts Educational Schools have their origin in schools founded in 1919 by Grace Cone and in 1922 by Olive Ripman. The Cone and Ripman schools were pioneers in providing suitably talented children with a general academic education in conjunction with specialised training in dance, drama, music and art, preparing young men and women for professional careers in or connected with the theatre. In 1939 the two schools amalgamated to become the Cone Ripman School. Today Arts Educational Schools London continues to support a world–renowned co–educational independent vocational school for pupils aged 11–18 years as well as a professional conservatoire with two main divisions offering BA and MA degrees in Acting and BA and MA degrees in Musical Theatre, all of which are validated by City University and accredited by Drama UK. There is also a wide ranging programme of part time courses for all ages.
All staff are required to promote and safeguard the welfare of children and young persons for whom they are responsible and with whom they come into contact.
