What we're doing about COVID-19

COVID-19 update
  • As a School, looking at the most recent guidance and developments on a national scale, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all face-to-face teaching until the end of the Summer Term. This means that students will not be required to physically be on either of our Campuses to continue with their training after the Easter Break.
  • All further learning for the 2019/20 academic year will be completed remotely. Under the current restraints, we have a dynamic and resourceful team who are able to deliver alternative training in ways that will provide a rich, robust, supportive and creatively challenging experience. 
  • Our 2020 on-Campus Auditions have been cancelled and all new applicants are asked to submit an Online Audition.

East 15 Acting School is a member of the Federation of Drama Schools (FDS) which represents twenty of the United Kingdom’s leading providers of professional conservatoire performance and technical training. 


As a community of artists, creators, and innovators, we have come together during the Covid-19 pandemic to provide support, guidance, reassurance and inspiration to our students, staff, graduates, alumni, colleagues and friends within the creative industries. 

The scale and impact of the coronavirus crisis has been significant upon our sector and related industries, which holds dear the ethos of embodied practice and the necessity of physical interaction in pursuit of understanding and celebrating the human condition. Whilst we are unable to determine the duration of the outbreak we are united in meeting the societal and educational challenges we collectively face with a shared determination and limitless imagination.
