Welcome Why The BRIT School? We believe that creativity is the future and young people of all backgrounds should be able to develop their creative talent and craft and make a powerful contribution to society. Creativity is crucial to the future of our economy and society. For 25 years, The BRIT School has successfully nurtured creative skills in students from every type of background alongside a robust and full academic curriculum. And it does so for free. If you choose to come here, you will be given the tools to carve out your career, the space to think and the environment to be you. This is a playground with professional boundaries where the raw talent of 14 – 19 year olds meets the nurturing expertise of world-class teachers.

We are proud to be a Croydon school and equally proud to have national and international friends who support the school with professional and unique opportunities. As the Good Schools Guide articulates, “You’ll find BRIT graduates’ words, music, performance, directorial and backstage talents just about everywhere you look, from fashion shows to musicals, national theatre to community arts, in the UK and internationally.” “You’ll find BRIT graduates’ words, music, performance, directorial and backstage talents just about everywhere you look, from fashion shows to musicals, national theatre to community arts, in the UK and internationally.” The Good Schools Guide 2016 This is a hardworking, fun, passionate school packed with dedicated individuals who love the creative and performing arts and recognise the importance of a thorough and robust education in all subjects.
