Acting continues to be the most competitive programme for entry to drama school across the UK. The Junior Conservatoire Acting course aims to work with a small number of aspiring actors who want to hone their skills and work towards a professional career in the industry. Successful applicants can select to do solely the skills development option, or the skills development plus performing company option.
