Apply to the UK’s leading vocational and academic school – for Years 3 to 12 (age 7 to 19).

Our balanced curriculum sets us apart from other schools and provides pupils with a well-rounded education, enabling them to achieve high academic excellence and versatility as a performer.

Pupils receive rigorous training in the performing arts, which is combined with an extensive academic programme of study. This begins with a broad vocational training in Tring Park Prep. At age 11 pupils can specialise in either Dance or Performance Foundation, with the option to focus on Dance, Commercial Music, Musical Theatre or Acting at Sixth Form level.

Our pupils are dedicated, committed, enthusiastic, and hard working. It’s an energetic and vibrant atmosphere – and that is something that quickly rubs off on new pupils.

How to apply

Candidates entering Year 7 and above are required to attend an entrance audition. Year 3 to 6 are invited to an informal assessment day.

Step 1 – Visit us

We would love to welcome you to Tring Park School for the Performing Arts! Head over to our events page to book your slot on one of our upcoming Open Days where you’ll have a chance to meet staff and students, tour the school grounds and ask any questions you may have.

Please note that our Open Days for September 2024 entry have now taken place.



Step 2 – The Application

Once you’ve found out everything you need to know about the course you’re applying for, it’s time to submit your application. Use the form below to apply to one of our vocational courses, or the second form to apply to more than one.




Step 3 – The Audition

We will allocate audition dates on a best fit basis. We will always try to accommodate any requests for specific dates, but unfortunately this may not always be possible.

Please note – later applications will be put on a waiting list once our published audition dates are full. Screening for auditions will be based solely on the applicant’s vocational experience and years of study. For the Dance Course, it will also be based on physique. We are committed to equality and value diversity. We actively support practices that promote genuine equality of opportunity for all staff and young people.


Step 4 – The Decision

Following the entrance audition you will be advised whether or not your child has been successful for a place at the school and, if suitable, they will be invited back to the final audition for a School Scholarship, a Music and Dance Scheme Award or a Dance and Drama Award (DaDA).
