Get to know the acting school

Studying at East 15 Acting School in Loughton isn’t your average student experience.

You’ll be in intensive training at one of the most prestigious and internationally respected conservatoires in the country, gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue a career in the performing arts. But fear not! It’s not all work and no play at East 15 Acting School in Loughton.

Great location

Yearning for the great outdoors? The campus is bordered by London’s largest open space, Epping Forest, which is just a stone’s throw away from Loughton. If you’re not afraid to get muddy, grab a mountain bike, or saddle up and try horse-riding. Alternatively, take a gentle walk throughout the 6,000 acres of beautiful, ancient woodland, and see what rare wildlife you can spot.

Are the bright lights of the city calling you? Hop on the Central line from Debden underground station (just a five-minute walk from campus), and within half an hour you can be amongst the buzz, excitement, and rich cultural diversity of central London.

We think you’ll agree that Loughton has the best of both worlds.
