About Mountview

Established in 1945 and one of the UK’s leading drama schools, Mountview develops actors, musical theatre performers, actor musicians, production technicians, practitioners and stage managers who will become the future of the creative industries. Through innovative practice, new approaches to working and close relationships with industry, we cultivate performers and practitioners who are independent, generous and actively connected to the issues of the day.    

The arts can enrich and change lives. We are passionate about dismantling barriers to the arts and engaging with communities locally, regionally and internationally. Every year we share our expertise and resources, opening up access to the dramatic arts for all ages and abilities, while simultaneously learning from and collaborating with the vibrant cultural ecology we are proud to be part of.
