About Us

Italia Conti is Britain’s oldest theatre training school. Established in 1911 it has, for over a hundred years, produced some our finest performers and has a worldwide reputation for training young people in the Performing Arts disciplines.

Demand resulted in the Academy opening part-time Associate schools throughout the country.

The ITALIA CONTI ASSOCIATES PETERSFIELD SCHOOL was opened in 2018. Each Associate school is unique to its host community and we are delighted to use the excellent facilities of The Petersfield School to run

our Friday and Saturday classes.

Additional Opportunities


Italia Conti Petersfield has close links with the professional world of performing arts and we draw on these links to enhance the experience of our students. We offer workshops and masterclasses where specialists in their field come in to share their knowledge. Additional workshops are also offered with our holiday courses.



Italia Conti Petersfield regularly take part in productions to showcase their work and this is often a highlight of the year for many students. Those at the appropriate standard may also have the opportunity to take dance and acting exams and gain qualifications and certificates with the exam boards. 



We are able to put forward exceptional students for representation by the Italia Conti Agency which finds work for young people in the performing arts. The Agency has placed many young performers in professional work from roles in West End theatre to film, television and commercials.
