About BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology
The BRIT School is Britain's only FREE Performing Arts and Technology School. It is an independent, state funded school, the only one of its kind dedicated to education and vocational training for the performing arts, media, art and design and the digital technologies that make performance possible.
Creativity is crucial to the future of our economy and society. For over a quarter of a century, The BRIT School has successfully nurtured creative skills in students from every type of background alongside a robust and full academic curriculum. And it does so for free.
Young people who choose to come here are given the tools to carve out their career, the space to think and the environment to be themselves. This is a playground with professional boundaries where the raw talent of 14–19 year old meets the nurturing expertise of world-class teachers.
The BRIT School revolutionises the lives of its students; 99% of all students who have graduated find work in a huge range of creative industries, or enrol for higher education. We are proud to be a Croydon school and equally proud to have national and international friends who support the school with professional and unique opportunities. As the Good School Guide articulates, “You’ll find BRIT graduates’ words, music, performance, directorial and backstage talents just about everywhere you look, from fashion shows to musicals, national theatre to community arts, in the UK and internationally.” This is a hardworking, fun, passionate school packed with dedicated individuals who love the creative and performing arts and recognise the importance of a thorough and robust education in all subjects. We believe in developing well rounded, articulate, kind and dynamic young people.
