Scholarships for gifted Surrey-based performing arts students, made possible by The Wates Family Enterprise Trust.


One scholarship still available

We recognise that not everyone has the ability to fund a place on our signature course. However, thanks to the generosity of The Wates Family Enterprise Trust, we are excited to be able to offer several scholarships this year to gifted young performers (aged 11-21) from the surrounding area, so that talented young performers do not miss out on the opportunity. We still have one place to fill.

We offer a range of courses and workshops to teach you skills that will set you apart in the industry; acting, singing, dance, audition skills, film production, music production and technical theatre. You can learn more about the Summer Academy, here.

Who we are looking for

If you are based in Cranleigh, Guildford, Godalming, Ewhurst or the surrounding areas, and would like the opportunity to attend our expert-led 5 day Summer Academy on a funded scholarship, applications are now open.

We are on the lookout for a student who:

  • Enjoys performing and shows great promise as a performer 
  • Demonstrates in their application their ability to work hard during the course 
  • Hopes to pursue performing after the course, either as a hobby or a career
  • Comes from a low-income household
