Welcome to The Gielgud Academy

The Gielgud Academy is a performing arts school based in Sussex for children age 3-18. We offer professional performing arts training in all dance disciplines and theatre arts with qualified teachers who are all former professional performers, ranging from Royal Ballet Principals to West End choreographers. We are blessed with male teachers for the boys to inspire a new generation of Billy Elliots.

We discover and nurture talent and are proud of our affiliation with Gielgud Management - one of the UK's leading talent agencies which ensures that professional West End Theatre, Film and TV work opportunities are brought to the GAPA pupils through it's very own children's book - GAPA Management. The pupils also benefit from GAPA's  affiliation to Gielgud Films - an award winning film production company that specialises in filming dance and the arts.
