Office for Students Funding Announcement
10th March 2023
Following yesterday’s announcement by the Office for Students, we are delighted to have been recognised as a valuable contributor to the performing arts and to the UK economy and as such have been awarded five years of specialist funding.
Susan Lapworth, chief executive of the OfS, said:
‘The performing arts make a significant economic and cultural contribution to society. They enrich lives and create tens of thousands of jobs across the UK. Students choosing performing arts courses develop diverse skills and have a wide range of career opportunities. The OfS’s investment will ensure that current and future generations of students – whatever their background – are able to succeed during their studies and into their careers. The small size and highly specialised approach of the institutions we are funding play an important role in their educational experience of students, and this funding will ensure they can continue to deliver a high quality experience.
Founded by Marie Rambert in 1920, Rambert School has led the way in dance training and education throughout its 100-year history, providing inspiring teaching within an intense and immersive student experience. We are committed to being a major force in the global dance scene, producing bold, relevant and industry-leading dance professionals. Through our work we are both feeding the dance profession and influencing it.
