The Oxford School of Drama provides a boutique, professional actor training in the form of a one year and three year course in addition to a foundation course. Our courses are accredited by Trinity College, London and we are recognised by industry around the world and boast successful alumni including writers, directors, filmmakers and actors (Claire Foy in “The Crown” and Sophie Cookson “ BBC’s The Trial of Christine Keeler” are two recent examples).
The school is a stunning stone farm conversion comprising beautiful studios and theatre, all with views of the Oxfordshire countryside. Our environment reflects the supportive and nurturing ethos of the school, where we offer bespoke, rigorous, conservatoire training.
Ensuring all our students meet their full potential and providing them with the best opportunities to find work is our top priority. We operate an open-door policy, so the students have easy, regular access to their teachers. Being one of the smallest drama schools we are able to support our students’ individual needs.
We have very strong London connections, and in their final year students perform at the Soho Theatre (New Writing Partnership) and The Royal Court where we invite leading casting directors and agents. You really can have the best of all worlds; the tranquillity of the Cotswolds, the hustle and bustle of Oxford city student life along with all the industry connections London has to offer.
With our training the hope is that all students with talent and commitment, no matter what their background, are given important skills to take forward for life and that they can not only be part of the industry but perhaps even change it.
