Statement from the Conservatoire Senior Management Team

At RCS we are proud of all our trans students and alumni, who are here on merit because they light up a stage when they perform, produce or direct. They are part of a future for theatre, music and all the arts free of bigotry, and we express nothing but solidarity with our trans community, and our commitment to that future: you are valued. We cast roles based on talent and the capacity that any individual has to bring an exciting perspective to it, and to inhabit that role. We don’t have to ‘make room’ – our trans students are in the room. We champion them, and our wonderful tutors who work so hard to support all students to reach their potential.

Our updated Trans Policy and Procedure for trans, non-binary and gender fluid students and staff is one of the many ways in which we bring to life our inclusive learning and teaching community. This is also celebrated in our most recent It Gets Better video, filmed by students and staff during LGBT+ history month 2019.


Equality and Diversity are of central importance to our working ethos, find out more on our Equality and Diversity pages.
