The Italia Conti Academy is Britain’s oldest theatre training school. Established in 1911 it has, for over a hundred years, produced some our finest performers and has a worldwide reputation for training young people in the Performing Arts disciplines.

Based in central London, the Academy offers professional training through full-time courses and high quality pre-vocational training at its part-time weekend classes to a limited number of pupils.


Italia Conti Chislehurst offers part-time courses at Coopers School. These, largely Saturday, classes are similar to those provided by the main London Academy to children and young people aged between 3 and 18+ years from all over Kent and South East London.

Pupils may choose one or more of the following classes:

Singing, Acting, Musical Theatre, LAMDA Examinations in Speech & Drama, ISTD Ballet, ISTD Modern and ISTD Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Street and Boys’ Class.

Pupils may take as many or as few subjects as they wish.

In addition to having the opportunity to appear in various shows and events, many attend our excellent Summer Schools held each year.


We are also pleased to be able to offer selected Associate School pupils the opportunity to audition for representation by the prestigious Italia Conti Agency.

Whilst most attend to enjoy the experience of high quality training for recreational purposes, some pupils may be designated ‘Professional Students’. These pupils attend all day and achieve very high standards in the expectation that they will eventually enter full-time training for a career in the entertainment media.
