An excellent school with a seemingly unique approach to actor training. Loved the physical intensity and rigour in their work, student progression was at times staggering, and I have been genuinely impressed by the support my daughter has received since graduation with their alumni programme. It's ethical and holistic in its approach and has a refreshingly inclusive world view for their actors and the industry as a whole. Lovely to to see a truly international school with students from all over the world working collaboratively to make exciting and innovative work.
