Arts Educational Schools (ArtsEd) offers all students an amazing experience in a truly unique environment. Our highly skilled staff have the privilege of working with motivated and talented pupils, undergraduates and postgraduates. Everyone is committed to the school and there is a warm, friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk into our lively foyer.
The rich diversity of ArtsEd is reflected in our teaching, our students and in the wide range of career paths they follow upon graduation. In March 2018, ArtsEd became one of the five leading UK drama schools to partner with the Diversity School Initiative, delivering a three-year commitment to address under-representation and a lack of diversity in performing arts training.
Our close association with the industry puts us at the forefront of Acting and Musical Theatre training; 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.
In 2016 we were named ‘School of the Year’ by The Stage and in 2017 the BE OPEN Foundation listed ArtsEd as one of the top five schools and colleges in the UK and one of the top 40 in Europe. We have a thriving, successful Day School and Sixth Form and offer a wide range of ArtsEd Extra evening, weekend and holiday courses for all ages and abilities.
Our mission is to deliver successful and fulfilling careers for all our students and staff. We inspire confidence, nurture talent and deliver excellent results!
We look forward to welcoming you to ArtsEd.
