This leading independent Performing Arts Academy is the UK’s Most Prestigious Training Ground for Young Talent and in March won the Scottish Variety Award for Best New Scottish Artistic Company 2011.

UKTheatreSchool bridge the gap between drama clubs and further education performing arts establishments. It's founder, Lizanne ( Lambie ) Thomson, noticed a clear gap in the education system to provide the correct training for young people looking to advance in performing arts. In January 2001 UKTheatreSchool Performing Arts Academy opened as an independent Drama and Musical Theatre school within the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama ( RSAMD ).

In 2006, due to the popularity and in turn growth, the school expanded into its own premises. The UKTheatreSchool is ideally situated within the most beautiful Grade B listed building within the vibrant Glasgow City Centre - two minutes walk from Glasgow Central & Queen Street train stations.

Since 2001 UKTheatreSchool Performing Arts Academy has provided its students with a structured comprehensive performing arts syllabus within the finest environment. This training has been commended by industry professionals and led to its students progressing on to many of the finest establishments in London, France, Germany, Italy and to the Juilliard School in New York, USA. Being part of the top Casting Agency in the country UKTheatreSchool students enjoy continued success in the theatre, film & television industries.
