Apply to the UK’s leading vocational and academic school – for ages 7-19.
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.
Years 7 to 12
Candidates are required to attend an entrance audition.
Step 1 – Screening Information Form
Please email the Screening Information Form below after completing the relevant section(s) for the course(s) that you are applying for. The form contains the email addresses to send the Screening Information Form to.
Step 2 – Application Form
If successful at the screening stage, you will be sent an email including a link to our online application form for the entrance audition. The form will take you through the process including our online payment system for the non-refundable audition fee of £45 per course.
Step 3 – The Audition
We will allocate an audition date on a first-come, first-served 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 audition, you will be advised whether or not your son/daughter has been successful for a place at the school.
If you require a Funding Audition, your child will then be invited back to a final audition for a School Scholarship, a Music and Dance Scheme Award or a Dance and Drama Award (DaDA). Students are automatically considered for funding through the Music and Dance Scheme.
