The Conservatoire schools exist to train young artists who will match the world’s best and on entering their professions, shape the future of dance, drama and circus arts.

The Conservatoire schools are small, specialist and vocational training institutions with international reputations for high quality delivery in their respective fields. Each school has a different but complementary approach to training a new generation of artists. The Conservatoire enables the eight schools to work together, whilst celebrating the diverse ethos and cultures of the individual schools, some of which have more than a century of experience in training students.
