Corona Theatre School (formerly Corona Academy) was originally founded in 1957 as a performing arts academy operating in the region of west London. It reopened as Ravenscourt Theatre School in 1989 and became known as Corona Theatre School in April 2010. The school announced in February 2013 that it would close.[1]

Outline[edit]

Students either attended the school on a full-time, part-time or holiday school basis. The full-time school admitted both boys and girls from the age of 11 and had a curriculum which pivoted around performing arts. Students had the opportunity to study 6 GCSE's as well as advanced training in all aspects of performing arts (Acting, Dance and Singing)

Students were admitted to the school by Audition, personal interview and a written examination.

Notable former pupils[edit]

Corona Management[edit]

Corona Theatre School ran a school agency, for both all the full-time students, past students and some actors and actresses from outside the school. The agency was run by James Spicer.
