Our courses provide full-time, vocational training for adults 18+, leading to level 4 and level 6 qualifications accredited by Trinity Guildhall. We were the first academy to offer this and are very proud of our 100% pass rate.
Our motto is “Strive to Succeed”. When you join KSA, you become part of a wider performing family who all work together to achieve success. With a nurturing and supportive, yet professional environment, KSA enables you to explore your full potential whilst gaining the skills and experience that come with hard work: the harder you work, the more you gain.
KSA is located in Beckenham, London at Beckenham Halls – a beautiful listed building. This attractive town benefits from exceptional transport links, including five mainline train stations (London zone 4 – only 15 minutes from central London), the Tramlink, numerous bus routes and ample, affordable parking.
KSA offers fantastic performance opportunities throughout the course, culminating in our end-of-year West End shows, attended by industry professionals. This provides students with the fantastic opportunity of showcasing the skills and applied techniques gained throughout their KSA training, in the cultural heart of theatreland.
Our acting students perform an industry showcase and a full-length play and, for our musical theatre students, the West End show also provides the unique opportunity of appearing in an original new musical. Our method of showcasing has received great response and has proved highly successful in helping our students gain representation and work in the industry.
