Junior Conservatoire

Welcome to the Junior Conservatoire

The Junior Conservatoire offers specialist and advanced training for committed and talented young people in dance, drama, music, production and screen.

“Drama at the Junior Conservatoire will open your mind, it will offer you a magical experience and help you transcend your boundaries. Go for it …”

James McAvoy, Patron of the RCS Junior Conservatoire of Drama

“I want to encourage young people to go on their own creative journeys. Within the Junior Conservatoire there is so much opportunity for the next generation of Scotland’s artists to receive training and support right here at the nation’s conservatoire.”

Nicola Benedetti, Patron of the RCS Junior Conservatoire of Music
