Arts Educational Schools London is a genuinely amazing environment where everyone works incredibly hard in the area they feel absolutely passionate about. All of our highly skilled and professional staff have the privilege of working with motivated and talented pupils, undergraduates and postgraduates.  

Our close association with the industry puts us at the forefront of Acting and Musical Theatre training and ArtsEd was ranked as the top Drama School for overall student satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey - 97% of students were pleased with their training.

Everyone is committed to the school and there is a warm, friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk into our lively foyer. At ArtsEd we believe that people learn best and achieve more when they feel positive about themselves.

The diversity of ArtsEd is unique in so many ways and this is reflected in our teaching, our students and in the exciting career paths which they follow upon graduation.

Our mission is to deliver successful and fulfilling careers for all our students and staff. We inspire confidence, nurture talent and deliver results! 

In 2016 we were named 'School of the Year' by The Stage and in 2017 the BE OPEN Foundation named ArtsEd as one of the top five schools and colleges in the UK and one of the top 40 in Europe. We also achieved record GCSE results, with 95.4% A*-C grades and equally fantastic A level results: the school's overall A*-B achievement was an outstanding 90%. And if you're looking for a wide range of inspiring and challenging part-time, evening and weekend courses, we have exactly what you need! See our ArtsEd Extra pages for full details.

We look forward to welcoming you to ArtsEd.
