Who we are:

Photo of Musical Theatre / Acting School in London, UKArts Educational Schools London have their origin in schools founded in 1919 by Grace Cone and in 1922 by Olive Ripman. The Cone and Ripman schools were pioneers in providing suitably talented children with a general academic education in conjunction with specialised training in dance, drama, music and art, preparing young men and women for professional careers in or connected with the theatre. In 1939 the two schools amalgamated to become the Cone Ripman School.

Today Arts Educational Schools London continues to support a world–renowned co–educational Independent Vocational School for pupils aged 11–18 years as well as a professional conservatoire with two main divisions Acting and Musical Theatre, offering BA and MA degrees. There is also a wide ranging programme of part time courses for all ages.

In 2007, Lord Lloyd Webber agreed to take on the role of President, taking on the role vacated by the death of Dame Alicia Markova, marking an auspicious new era for the Arts Educational Schools London.

Career Prospects of our Graduates:

Image of Musical Theatre / Acting School in London, UKSince the beginning of this course in 1993 we have produced an international body of actors now working in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Argentina, South Africa, Scandinavia and Europe, as well as the UK. We have also produced some fine directors, writers and teachers. Recently we have had actors in the National and Royal Shakespeare Companies, in the West End and in major national tours, as well as major films and TV series. Other former students have worked in Educational Theatre, Fringe Theatre or started their own companies and even theatrical agencies.

Most of our graduates are actors who have former careers or trades on which they can rely to provide for the many times that a contemporary actor in our society is either under or un-employed! Our training is for life – not for who gets the first job – and our major concern is training the artist as a cultural architect, a person who grasps the overall picture of their professional and cultural vocation and is prepared to influence attitudes and shape the future.
