Bristol Old Vic Theatre School is based on three specialist sites in the heart of the vibrant and creative city of Bristol. The School is non-residential, but we welcome students from outside of the area and are able to advise applicants about local accommodation options.

The School also offers a programme of youth courses for school years 3 – 13. Further information is available from the Youth Group – Theatre Skills page.

The School is in a beautiful part of Bristol, overlooking a huge park called the Downs. We sometimes take advantage of our close proximity to the Downs during the summer term, practising fight and dance routines, or voice or singing classes! Dan Hall, BA Professional Acting student
