The Academy prides itself on the supportive and caring 'family' atmosphere we offer our students. This is made possible by the relatively small number of students on site, combined with high student/tutor contact hours. Students have access to continual pastoral care and receive regular individual tutorials with specific course tutors. All members of staff conduct classes in a supportive and mutually respectful manner. The Academy's 'open door' policy allows students to fully communicate with their peers and Academy staff and they are encouraged to express and discuss any difficulties they may be experiencing.


The Academy cannot accept responsibility for personal property of any kind belonging to students that may be lost on its premises. Students are advised to take out an insurance policy for personal property.

All Theatre Arts School pupils are required to wear Academy uniform. All students attending full-time and short courses are required to wear suitable vocational clothing and should have appropriate equipment. Full details of uniform and equipment will be given upon acceptance, much of which can be obtained from our online shop at www.italiaconti.com
