Founded by Tracey K Summerscales (FISTD Examiner) starting with just 7 pupils, the school has grown into a part time Performing Arts Centre, training young talented performers for the professional stage giving students the chance to be able to take exams in all disciplines.  We are proud to offer tuition from highly qualified or specialised teachers from the profession.

At Summerscales we believe it is important to give OPPORTUNITY no matter a students background or natural ability.
