Our facilities

The school comprises 11 studios, including a large performance studio which has set a new benchmark for drama training facilities in the UK. Each studio contains: specialist acoustic panelling, specialist sprung floors, a heating system that radiates heat equally around the studio and an air replacement system that maintains a constant room temperature.

Patricia Yardley Studio

The large performance studio, known as the Patricia Yardley Studio, uses variable acoustics which can be adjusted. It also houses a fully operational lighting rig and a quadraphonic sound system. This studio is used for taught classes across all courses as well as for performances, where a professional raked seating and/or staging system is constructed.

Public Performances

We also use professional venues for all public performances, which means the School has access to a range of theatre spaces that few drama schools can match.These regularly include Sir Barry Jackson's historic 'Old Rep'; the Crescent Theatre, and comprises a main auditorium and studio theatre; the Library Theatre; and the new Patrick Centre at the Birmingham Hippodrome.
