What are summer schools?


Our summer schools are short courses for children, young people and adults that take place during July and August. They include week-long courses, weekly evening classes and weekends.

Courses are taught by our world-class teachers and guest artists, and you can take part at RCS this summer!

Our courses are aimed at both beginners who want to experience their first taste of the performance and production arts, and experienced students who want to further develop their skills.
