In a truly collaborative environment, our students learn with and from those who influence their fields of study and research, as well as continuing to perform and practise their craft on a global stage.

A jewel in the crown of the School is the multi-million pound development, Middleton Hall - a world-class arts venue incorporating a 400-seat concert hall, industry standard recording and rehearsal spaces, and much more.
