Shelagh Ellott-Clarke Performing Arts is nationally renowned for producing hard working, employable, disciplined and rounded performers with a touch of class. Throughout the years we have earned an excellent reputation and we have built close links with all national vocation schools such as Doreen Bird, London Studio Centre, Urdang, LIPA and Performers. Students can also progress onto Shelagh Elliott-Clarke Theatre College BTEC & HND courses.


"Our priority is to encourage great technique and personal development in a family environment, moving forward together and giving students skills for life. A place to feel confident, lose inhibitions and creatively collaborate. Producing qualities not only as a great performer, but as a great individual."
