Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts


Mountview is one of the UK’s leading drama schools, with a long-standing and international reputation for providing the highest quality training to actors, musical theatre performers, directors, creative producers and theatre technicians.

We offer intensive, practical training with all students receiving over thirty hours of teaching each week. Classes are small and students receive regular one-to-one sessions with tutors.

Courses are structured to give students a thorough grounding in all aspects of their chosen field. Students are trained to develop a high level of skills which will bring thought, energy and commitment to their professional work, giving them the tools to succeed in a competitive industry.

Students work not only with Mountview’s experienced teaching staff but also with current theatre practitioners: directors, set designers, lighting and sound designers, choreographers, musical directors, actors and stage managers. As well as keeping students in touch with current professional practice, this provides valuable contacts on completion of the course. Students are additionally supported by industry liaison managers to build links with agents, casting directors and other professionals.

Mountview also has a strong commitment to training in the specialised requirements of TV, film and radio.

Mountview is dynamic and engaging. Training requires dedication and talent, but the rewards are great. Mountview is committed to equal opportunities and widening participation. We work to create significant opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to develop and enrich their life through the practice of theatre and related arts.
