The Conservatoire and its Schools have been working closely with one another and with the Office for Students to move towards new arrangements, with each of the Schools pursuing an independent pathway outside of the Conservatoire. We are pleased to confirm that as of June 2022, each of the schools has achieved its desired outcome and the transition to new arrangements will be effective from 1 August 2022.
The Conservatoire and the Schools are working towards a target transition date of July 2022 with Schools’ new arrangements in place from 1 August 2022:
- Central School of Ballet, London Contemporary Dance School, National Centre for Circus Arts, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and Rambert School are applying for independent registration with the Office for Students
- Bristol Old Vic Theatre School is entering a partnership arrangement with the University of the West of England (UWE).
