If you are passionate about supporting the future of dance, we would love to hear from you. We are excited to tell you more about the work we do and why we have an international reputation for excellence in dance training.

Rambert School prides itself on accessibility and being committed to recruiting students on talent alone regardless of their ability to pay. We are not a private school, we are higher education provider and therefore our funding comes from student fees and a teaching grant from the Office for Students.
For entry in 2021, fees for UK students applying for the FD/BA (Hons) Ballet and Contemporary Dance are set at £9,250 per year and £18,800 for EU and International students. The tuition fee is subject to further increase in subsequent years of study by an inflationary amount determined by Government. We aim to provide support to our talented students, particularly for those who experience financial challenges, to help them reach their full potential. Our Student Bursary Fund enables us to make this happen. Our bursaries help to cover tuition fees, living expenses, specific dance training expenses such as ballet shoes and costumes, as well as audition costs. Removing financial barriers helps students make the most from their training, enabling them to excel and progress in their dance career.
To continue to meet our goal of achieving excellence and to mark our centenary we are committed to raising more funds than ever before for our Student Bursary Fund and have a target of £120,000.
The COVID-19 Hardship Fund is designed to support students whose financial situation has been impacted by the global pandemic.
COVID-19 has been and continues be a huge challenge for all educational establishments, not least in the performing arts. With the generous support of many individuals and Trust & Foundations, we have been able to provide urgent cash bursaries to support students with fees, accommodation, flights home and even laptops, to ensure all can continue their training . 65% of our students already receive vital help through our student bursary fund The risk is that these further financial stresses on the students caused by the current situation may prevent a significant number being able to complete their training.
Donations to our COVID-19 Hardship Fund will directly support our students protecting the future of their training. They need your support now more than ever.
Celebrating 100 years of Rambert School.
In the past five years we have undergone a rapid period of change, both cementing the core philosophies of the training and opening doors for new developments and innovations. Principal and Artistic Director, Amanda Britton, has built on the rich and successful history and created an artistic vision which will ensure a strong, stable and ambitious future and secure an international reputation of significance.
Whilst we celebrate our success, we believe we are only at the beginning of our journey taking the School into the next century. We have ambitious plans to further our work, increase our reach both nationally and internationally and remain a driving force of dance education.
Our ambitions now need to be matched by our facilities and in 2022 we will undertake capital improvement works to our home. We will create modern state-of-the-art training facilities that will be a legacy for the future of Rambert School for both core student training and also for our growing widening and participation work.
With the support of The Linbury Trust we were able to begin work to the Anya Linden Studio Theatre in August 2019.
Reconfiguring the studio to gained much needed space for our growing student numbers. We also upgraded the outdated sound and lighting equipment. The Weston Studio is the School’s smallest studio and its use is restricted by its size particularly in light of new social distancing guidelines. We have secured planning permission to extend this studio by 4 metres, providing an additional 44.8 square metres in size. This will create an improved studio space and enable more classes to take place for the benefit of our students and the wider community.
