A little bit of the history…

UK Theatre School performing arts academy bridge the gap between drama clubs and further education performing arts establishments. Our Principal, Lizanne Lambie Thomson, noticed a clear gap in the education system to provide the correct training for young people looking to advance in performing arts. UK Theatre School performing arts academy opened as an independent Drama and Musical Theatre school within the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama ( RSAMD ) now known as The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland ( RCS ).

The school expanded into its own premises and is ideally situated within the most beautiful Grade B listed building within the vibrant Glasgow City Centre - two minutes’ walk from Glasgow Central & Queen Street train stations.
