About Arts Educational Schools London

The Arts Educational Schools London, is an independent secondary school and training centre based in Chiswick, London and comprises an Independent Vocational Day School for those aged 11-18 years, and a professional Conservatoire training Acting and Musical Theatre students for those aged 18 years and upwards.

They also offer a comprehensive range of part-time and short courses for almost every age group with ballet, jazz, drama classes and more on a Saturday; evening classes for adults who are looking for an introduction to the profession or those wishing to develop existing skills; and both professional and introductory Easter and Summer programmes for all abilities.

The Arts Educational Schools originated from the Cone School of Dancing founded in 1919 and the Ripman School founded in 1922. In 1939 these Schools amalgamated to form the Cone-Ripman Schools, which became entitled the Arts Educational Schools. The founders of the Arts Educational Schools, Grace Cone and Olive Ripman, believed that a talent in the performing arts had to be nurtured alongside rigorous training.

Arts Educational Schools London is part of the Conference of Drama Schools (CDS) and has courses accredited by the National Council for Drama Training (NCDT) and The Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET). 

Julie Andrews, Darcey Bussell, Martin Clunes, Joan Collins, Adam Cooper, Janie Dee, Nigel Harman, Nigel Havers, Bonnie Langford, Cherie Lunghi, Jane Seymour, Hugo Speer, Summer Srallen and Will Young are just a few of the former students from the schools.
