The Arts Centre Telford works with every individual to help them to be the best they can be. We recruit the very best staff and ensure that our curriculum reflects the needs of all students.
Our team is made up of industry professionals and qualified teachers who are passionate about training the next generation of performers.
We know that high quality performance opportunities are crucial to a performer's development.
We’ve created a video detailing the TACT videos, They sum us up well:
EXAMINATION PASS RATE

In our most recent exam session, 85% of students achieved distinctions in their musical theatre exams.
students to stage schools
In the last 6 years, over 40 students have successfully graduated to professional stage schools across the UK.
They never quite leave us though - they visit every holiday to let us know how they're getting on!
YEARS OF LAUGHS, FUN & THEATRE
We are celebrating 7 years of sharing amazing theatre with Shropshire audiences. Packed theatre, standing ovations and smiling performers tell us that we're having fun!
We inspire people to become creative individuals with the confidence to fulfil their ambitions through the performing arts. We are proud to provide an outstanding artistic outlet for our home town of Telford and we champion the arts for children, young people and communities across the West Midlands.
