Exceptional pastoral care combined with expert teachers inspire pupils’ confidence, curiosity and commitment to all of their studies, both academic and vocational. Our aim is for every pupil to leave ArtsEd as a creative, articulate and imaginative young adult, assured of their ability to achieve their best in their chosen field.
“Pupils excel in working with others, continually supporting and encouraging each other, and driving one another on to further achievement.”

Our ethos is underpinned by our SIX PILLARS OF EXCELLENCE:
ArtsEd is the best place for any young person with talent and ambition. A recognised award-winning centre of excellence in the performing arts, we have been nurturing creative and talented children since 1919.
Resilience is such an important quality to develop in the modern world, especially for anyone considering a career in the performing arts. We aim to develop everyone’s ability to ‘bounce back’ and stay focused in the face of challenges or disappointment.
In every classroom, studio and theatre space, the skills needed for successful teamwork are demonstrated and reinforced, allowing for a genuine sense of collaboration to develop. Our community of teachers, parents, students and pupils provides a place of passion and love for all to accomplish something incredible.
Self-discipline is a key quality that we foster, encouraging pupils to develop a range of aptitudes and skills that see them grow as independent, articulate problem-solvers who are enthusiastic, brave and bold.
The unique success of ArtsEd is built on strong pastoral relationships, which pupils find both supportive and motivational. We foster their individuality and personal growth as much as their academic development, and create the learning conditions required for pupils to be able to look at, and understand, any situation from another’s point of view. We encourage and enable all of our pupils to demonstrate respect, understanding and empathy for everyone they meet, through showing tolerance, courtesy and enthusiasm for learning.
Appreciating and making the most of every learning opportunity that comes your way is an attribute that lies at the heart of our pupils’ success. We enhance this quality by teaching our students to celebrate every success, instilling an appreciation of the powerful role that personal drive plays in getting things done.
“I wanted my daughter to be somewhere where she could continue her academic successes, but in a warm and happy environment that’s fun and supportive, and ArtsEd was the answer.”
