We now have spaces for students to start in September.

Main School - Ages 5-13

Based in the Knight's Building at Lincoln College on Sundays, our emphasis in the Main School is on fun and confidence-building in a safe environment. Younger children are always accompanied by a chaperone.


Classes are divided into 3 groups based upon school year and run for three hours (10am-1.00pm) comprising one hour of drama, one hour of dance and one hour of singing. 

Each school year, the Main School performs three shows:

A Christmas pantomime,
A Musical at the end of the Spring Term, and
A Summer Spectacular held in July. 


At the end of every summer show, the Lincoln Academy awards ceremony takes place. These awards are given to children who have worked hard and excelled in each of the different disciplines (drama, dance and singing). Awards are also given for the most promising student and student of the year.

Senior School - Ages 14-18

Based in the Knight's Building at Lincoln College on Sundays from 9.45am-1.00pm we provide specialist tuition in Drama, Ballet and Singing, together with workshops held by West-End practitioners. Our Senior School year culminates in the performance of a popular West-End musical in a 4-day run at the Lincoln Drill Hall at the end of the Summer term.
