Student Achievements

Over the years, many pupils have gone on to further training with some of the most established schools and colleges in the country.

Pupils have been accepted in to ‘The Royal Ballet School’ (Associate, Lower & Senior Schools), ‘ Elmhurst Ballet School’, ‘Central School of Ballet’, ‘Bush Davis School’, ‘Hammond School’, ‘Arts Educational School’, ‘Laine Theatre Arts’, ‘Doreen Bird College of Performing Arts’, ‘ Laban Centre’, ‘ Mountview Theatre School’, ‘Italia Conti’, ‘ Central School of Speech & Drama’ and ‘London Studio centre’.

Students success is not only measured by those who progress to further training and a potential career. Success comes in many ways, shapes and forms. A 75 year old lady attending a weekly ‘keep fit’ class brings in itself a high level of achievement and pleasure to both teacher and pupil. Success also shows its face as youngsters with either social or physical disabilities learn to relax and control their bodies and minds to far greater effect. Confidence, motivation, application, hard work, reward and enjoyment are all key elements that can be experienced by anyone, whether 3 years old or 83 years old.
