Teachers

Our courses are delivered by industry professionals, with our team including West End performers, actors from stage and screen, vocal coaches and producers. Students are monitored and mentored by our core faculty throughout. We also welcome guest masterclass teachers, choreographers and directors for various projects and performances.

 

Pastoral Care

All students receive regular pastoral tutorials, and can approach their tutor at any time if they wish to discuss any concerns.

Our Student Mentor Holly Miles is an experienced coach, certified NLP practitioner and fully qualified nutritional therapist and is available for confidential appointments once a month for any students who would like this.

During induction week, students participate in a group workshop delivered by Holly, where they receive information and practical tips on how to support their physical and emotional well-being throughout the course, and beyond. This includes both dietary education and coaching strategies. We find this hugely beneficial to young people coping with the demands of intensive performing arts training.
