The BRIT school

The BRIT School is the UK’s first and leading free performing and creative arts school for 1,400 young people aged 14 to 19. The School – an exempt charity based in Croydon – invests in the future of the UK’s cultural wealth by nurturing young artistic talent from all backgrounds and teaching the skills needed by the rapidly growing creative industries. We believe that young people of all backgrounds should be able to develop their creative talent and craft and make a powerful contribution to society. BRIT stands for the British Record Industry Trust.

In June of this year, students studying on our Applied Theatre course visited Mountbatten Hospice and worked alongside some of the patients to devise a performance piece inspired by their stories and experiences. Using the power of human connection and conversation everyone involved contributed to the development of a compassionate, creative and deeply moving performance.

Emma Banton, Head of Community Arts Practice and the students of the BRIT school will share this performance with us on Thursday 20th October.

Stuart Worden, Principal will also speak on the history and work of the BRIT school and impact within communities.
