Original, responsible, ambitious: The BRIT School is vocational, academic, inclusive and free.
The BRIT School is the UK’s first and leading performing arts and technology state school, providing a unique and free education for 1,400 pupils aged between 14 and 19 from every type of background. The school was built in Selhurst, Croydon and opened in 1991 with the support of the Department for Education and the British Record Industry Trust.
We believe in creating an environment where young people can find their own voice. The BRIT School is nurturing the new fashion designers, illustrators, playwrights, performers, stage managers, composers, teachers, community group leaders, choreographers, filmmakers, game developers, and creative thinkers of the future. Nearly 100% of all students who have graduated find employment predominately in the creative industries or enrol for Higher Education.
The BRIT School relies on the generosity of individuals, companies and institutions to fund everything that makes BRIT a special place: the people, productions and facilities that enable us to break down barriers for young people seeking an exciting career in the arts.
