We’re passionate about making the School’s training accessible to people regardless of background.
Production Arts Workshops
Open to students in Year 9-11 who might be interested in training in the production arts, students will have a chance to sample classes in lighting, puppet making, sound design and more!
We host annual open days for undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Please note open days are only for creative and technical courses – we are unable to offer open days for acting applicants.
We welcome requests from schools for us to come and talk to prospective students. If you’re interested in such an opportunity, get in touch with us via [email protected]
We attend UCAS Create Your Future fairs in Manchester and London each year. Come along and meet us there – make sure you bring lots of questions!
We run short courses in acting each summer and have a number of bursary places available for these.
Interested in bringing students to shows or telling them more about our courses? We’ve got a teacher mailing list for you to sign up for here.
We’ve outlined below a number of options you can look into if you’re worried about funding. All of the opportunities will be assessed for eligibility.
There are a number of bursaries available each year which are means-tested. We also have discretionary hardship funds should you need this whilst training with us.
In addition, the CDD offer scholarships for undergraduate students who are new to Higher Education as well as bursaries for students who are care leavers and estranged students.
Each year we offer the Plowright Bursary for mature students who are making a change in their career.
