  • About
    “Redroofs is not just a school. It's a way of life!”

    Established in London in 1947, Redroofs Theatre School moved to Littlewick Green, Maidenhead, in 1964 under the directorship of June Rose, Founder and Principal. The house, previously the country home of the late Ivor Novello, had been the rendezvous for most of the greatest screen and theatrical artists of the era, and the inspiration for much of Novello's music.

    Redroofs has grown over the years to include a separate site for our under-16s; a theatre in Ascot, Berkshire; permanent offices at the prestigious Pinewood Studios; and uses further studio space at the stunning Norden Farm Centre for the Arts.

    The School prides itself on its ability to bring out the best in its pupils, and whether you are looking at Redroofs as a professional training ground or a once-a-week activity, Redroofs is a school where pupils are valued, where real confidence is borne and harnessed, and where ambitions are recognised and encouraged.

    Whilst careers in acting and, indeed, all areas of the performing arts are notoriously difficult to sustain, the School, with its own professional theatre and Agency, offers a realistic way into the industry, encouraging a strong work ethic, adaptability and self-reliance. Our student course is unique amongst drama schools in both considering students from 16 years and also in encouraging its students to gain professional credits whilst training.

    Our "extended family" of ex-pupils working in the industry today include theatre producers; fully qualified dance teachers; directors; ADs; scenic artists; published writers; literary and theatrical agents; stage managers and educationalists; as well as many working actors, singers and dancers including household names, numerous BAFTA and Oscar nominees ...and winners!

    This postgraduate diploma was an intensive course that spanned five months. By the end of the course, I felt comfortable on set and understood what would be expected of me both technically and artistically. The tutors were excellent, teaching a mixture of Method and Meisner techniques, which one was then free to adopt or not. The course was pricey and the facilities were slightly disappointing (I believe they are being refurbished), however I can recommend this course to anyone with a theatrical background who would like to become familiar with film acting.
