Students train in The Courtyard’s three main spaces: the Main House, the Studio and the White Room. There is also a Green Room with lockers for use during breaks and the Iambic Bar for post-training relaxation.
The Main House is a versatile theatre space with numerous staging options, full lighting rig and sound system. With room for 150 seats, it is the biggest space which sits on the second floor of the building with an external ramp for wheelchair access. Used for classes such as Classical Theatre and Improvisation, the space is often hired to professional companies during the evening where students are encouraged to come watch.
The White Room is a beautiful open space, again sitting on the second floor of the building, adjacent to the Main House. It features a high ceiling and large windows allowing natural light to fill the room. The space is mirrored and fitted with Harlequin Studio dance floor which makes it the perfect space for movement and Stage Combat classes. The space is wheelchair accessible via a lift.
The Studio theatre comes complete with sound and lighting systems and a raised main stage with space for 80 seats. It stands on the ground floor, adjacent to the Iambic Bar, and is often hired for Live Music events in the evening.
The Iambic Bar is entirely unique in both décor, set up and clientele; used by both students, performers, musicians and public when performances are on! With a host of wines and sprints, and selected beers and cider on tap, students benefit from discounted prices.

Training in a working theatre is great because I don’t have to work in school like environment and it’s nice sharing the building with just two other year groups. Any show we do is based in the heart of London, which is very important for inviting people, and I can see shows for free…
