East 15 Acting School (CDS • NCDT • University of Essex)
East 15 Acting School was founded by Margaret Walker in 1961 on the principles developed by Joan Littlewood's renowned Theatre Workshop. Since then East 15 has grown to be recognised as one of the industry's leading innovators, and one of Britain's top drama schools. The school has two main campuses, the original 'Hatfields' location set in parkland on the outskirts of London, and state of the art new facilities at Southend in conjunction with the University of Essex.
East 15 has a proud history of recognition in industry awards. Recent successes include the Spotlight award (2004, 2007 and 2009), the Laurence Olivier bursary (seven years out of the past ten), the Carleton Hobbs award (two years running), John Gielgud bursaries, Lilian Baylis awards, Henry Cotton Memorial awards, and the first annual Stage Scholarship, amongst a wealth of others.
