About Us

Recognised and funded as a centre of excellence by the DCSF under the Music and Dance Scheme (MDS) and supported also by the EFA's Dance and Drama Awards (DaDa) scheme, we offer full time educational courses from the age of 11 in Dance, Drama and Music alongside GCSE and GCE level academic provision in a broad range of subjects.  Our Dance course includes training in classical ballet, tap, jazz, modern, street and contemporary dance.  Post-16 we offer the National Diploma in Performing Arts (Dance) and (Musical Theatre), validated by Trinity College, London, plus a BTEC level 3 in performing Arts (acting) 6th Form Drama Course with 2 A Levels.

Our new preparatory school is located within the school's grounds at Hoole Bank and offers a separate and secure Key Stage 1-2 education to pupils who can also take advantage of the extensive facilities in the Hammond. Located just outside the city of Chester, Cheshire, only two hours north of London by rail, our facilities are second to none.  We have our own 400 seat theatre, 8 Dance studios and 2 dedicated Drama studios, Music and Music Technology rooms and a small recording studio, provided as a result of extensive recent investments in the school's infrastructure.
