A warm welcome from our Founder and Principal, Lindsay Inglesby:
“Welcome to Rare! We are a centre of excellence for the performing arts in the vibrant and internationally celebrated city of Liverpool.
From the moment you join us as a Rare student we will be preparing you to audition at the very highest level. Whether your ambition is to win a place at your dream performing arts college or to launch a career straight into the industry, we will provide you with the tools you need to excel in this exciting and competitive world. All our teachers are industry professionals, and our direct links to some of the world’s biggest agents, producers, choreographers and casting directors ensure our students are regularly auditioning for professional jobs throughout their training.
Our graduate success rate is phenomenal and speaks for itself. Rare students are winning places at not only the best performing arts colleges and conservatoires in the UK, but in the world, and are achieving immensely successful careers on stage and screen.
We pride ourselves on offering our students way above the standard 16 hours per week in practical training – they get to train five days a week, all day every day, which is just one of the reasons they’re the best in the business.
The wellbeing, safety and success of our students are top priority – our goal is to provide a safe, welcoming learning environment in which everyone can express their individuality and fulfil their maximum potential.
Rare Studio was founded to ensure that any student with the talent to succeed would not be held back by their financial or personal circumstances. We have scholarships available to support students not only during their time with us but even after graduation.
We have a high application rate and a limited amount of places, but we are looking for potential over experience! If you have talent, passion, curiosity and a genuine hunger to learn, we really want to hear from you.”
Entry for our full-time college and part-time elite programmes is by audition only. We accept candidates we believe are capable of progressing on to higher education, further vocational training or working professionally in the industry.
Entry for our Pre-Elite programme is not by audition. This programme is open to anyone between the ages of 3 and 12, and is designed to develop confidence and skills.
Our scholarship programme ensures that a selected number of students who show exceptional potential are able to progress and be supported in their training regardless of their personal circumstances or financial background.
