Established in 1998, Peploe-Williams Academy provides the highest standard of performing-arts tuition to students of all ages, delivered by industry professionals who know their subjects inside out.
Our students’ success lies in the quality of our teaching. Our teachers are key to this school. With any training school the results should speak for themselves, and at Peploe-Williams Academy we’re proud to publish our results throughout the year on our website and to our customers.
We are part of CDET (Council for Dance Education & Training), which gives parents comfort by ensuring that their children are being taught by the right teachers.
Our West End stage, film and television contacts and connections are formidable, and we are recognised as a quality source of fresh talent for the UK’s leading drama, vocal and dance schools.
All our teachers are successful professional actors, dancers, choreographers, directors and vocalists. They’ve ‘been there and done it’, and can share their coal-face experience in their teaching.
There are no shortcuts. To audition successfully for the leading colleges at age 16 or 18, you need a thorough grounding in all disciplines of the performing arts.
If you’re good at the end of our classes, workshops or summer schools, it means you’re very good. And we will always promote students with genuine potential.
If you’re ready to make the commitment, come and join our school.
