UKTheatreSchool SCIO

Why We Are Here

UKTheatreSchool SCIO is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation.  We believe performing arts training should be available to all young people as it is key for overall self-confidence.  Training in the arts has transferable skills that can be used in every walk of life.  We work with young people to help them progress in the arts and most importantly become confident adults who are ready to take on the world.  We have one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet.

Our Mission Statement

We aim to bring performing arts to everyone including underprivileged and disadvantaged young people, ensuring they are not defined by their circumstances but instead lead by their goals and ambitions. UKTheatreSchool is where talented students become educated performers.


UKTheatreSchool makes a significant impact by helping disadvantaged talented young people get involved in performing arts. It is also aimed at helping disadvantaged young people progress onto further education within the performing arts.

The Principal of the academy said, “It was so disappointing and disheartening for us to realise that so many talented young people are being prevented from advancing in the arts due to lack of finance. We wanted to set up our school as a charity to help these young people realise their ambitions.

The charity is still growing, therefore, it is not currently possible to help everyone but we will get there. One day, this charity will be a lifeline for many, many young talented people in this country.”

UK Theatre School SCIO can offer full scholarships, part-scholarships and donations (where possible). If you believe you or your child is eligible for a scholarship, please email
