Tring Park School for the Performing Arts is unique amongst specialist schools in the UK. At Tring Park talented young people from 8–19 specialise in Dance, Acting, Musical Theatre or Commercial Music, while also having the opportunity to study for GCSEs and up to 23 A Level subjects. Entrance is via audition and scholarships are available for Dance via the Government's Music and Dance Scheme. School scholarships and bursaries are available for Drama and Musical Theatre.

Pupils perform regularly both in Tring Park's Markova Theatre as well as in London, throughout the UK and Europe. Our graduating dance students perform in 'Encore Dance', Tring Park's touring company which, this year, performed 11 shows in England and Wales culminating in a London performance at the Sadler's Wells Lilian Baylis Studio. Musical Theatre students have a regular season at the Pizza Express Pheasantry in Chelsea. Tring Park provides ballet dancers annually to perform in the Christmas production of Nutcracker with English National Ballet at the London Coliseum. Six pupils have played the part of Billy in Billy Elliot in the West End and on tour, The Tring Park Chamber Choir "The Sixteen" has won the 2019 BBC Songs of Praise Senior Choir of the Year - the second time in four years and recently came third in the highly competitive International Eisteddfod.

During the Summer Tring Park runs highly sought-after boarding and day courses in Dance, Musical Theatre and Acting.

Our new four-storey boarding house and teaching block opens in September 2019. The building includes six academic and vocational teaching spaces, a theatre workshop and 70 beds for our boarders. Stage two will include an art department and 6th Form Study Centre and the final phase will create a 450 seat theatre.
