The School is located at the picturesque Three Mills Media Complex on the River Lee, in Bromley-by-Bow in London’s east end, not far from Canary Wharf and the City Airport. This acts both as a campus, providing 24 hour security, a restaurant/café facility, a supermarket close by, and a community of artists and technical personnel working on a variety of film, TV, dance, opera and theatre productions on the 32 acre site.

The School is housed in the Waterhouse Studio facility. The studio has a sprung wood floor, and all amenities and equipment necessary to its operation. it is accessible by bus, underground (tube) and by car, and parking is available.

The school does not provide accommodation for its students. Rent-sharing and co-operative living with other students is often a strategy. The School provides an information and advice package on accommodation options to students accepted into any of the programmes.

Part-time work is also an option for some students, but ensure that it does not interfere
with the School schedule. Performance work cannot be accepted without the prior written approval of the Director.
