FULL TIME SCHOOL
The school was established in 1981 in Drury Lane and in 1983 moved to a former 1880’s church school building in Marylebone. In July 2010, we moved to our new premises in Nutford Place, just off Seymour Place in W1. Our site houses two vocational floors with studios, rehearsal rooms, a recording studio, two academic floors and a large canteen with two courtyard gardens.
Location and Student Intake
Our central London location, well-served by public transport, allows us to draw students across the south-east and the wider UK.
The Sylvia Young Theatre School is non-denominational and co-educational. Our students range from 10 to 16 years of age. We are a small school of around 250 students and value our ‘family atmosphere'.
Students join our full time school after successfully completing the audition process.
The School Week
On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays our students follow their academic programme, building key skills, in addition to working for GCSE examinations in a broad range of subjects.
On Thursdays and Fridays students follow their vocational programme, receiving training in the performing arts (drama, dance and singing) whilst developing their individual performance skills.

Parents are required to pay a holding fee of £500 before their child joins the school. This secures the child's place. This holding fee is non-refundable. However, at the official school leaving age, when the student comes off the school roll, the holding fee will be refunded to the parent(s) /guardian(s) responsible for school fees and charges. The refund will be made when the school accounts for the student is settled in all respects (including fees, charges and replacement equipment etc).
If any student is withdrawn without a full school term's notice being given in writing to the Headteacher, a term's fee in lieu of notice will be payable. Two terms' notice must be given for any Year 9, 10 & 11 students.
