About Arts Educational Schools London
The Arts Educational Schools London, is an independent secondary school and higher education provider based in Chiswick, West London.
The Arts Educational Schools have their origin in schools founded in 1919 by Grace Cone and in 1922 by Olive Ripman. The Cone and Ripman schools were pioneers in providing talented children with a general academic education in conjunction with specialised training in dance, drama, music and art, preparing young men and women for professional careers in or connected with the theatre. In 1939 the two schools amalgamated to become the Cone Ripman School.
Today ArtsEd continues to support a world–renowned,co-educational, independent vocational school for pupils aged 11–18 years as well as a professional conservatoire, with two main divisions, offering BA and MA degrees in Acting and BA, and MA degrees in Musical Theatre, all of which are validated by City University and accredited by Drama UK.
ArtsEd is extremely proud of its outreach programme which is central to their commitment to ensure inclusivity across everything they do. Building strong links with youth groups, colleges and sixth forms, ArtsEd aims to provide talented young people with a clear pathway to vocational training and to introduce them to the unique energy and welcome of ArtsEd.
The future of this country's musical theatre depends on centres of excellence, such as the Arts Educational Schools London, which nurture and inspire young performers.- Andrew Lloyd Webber
