About English National Ballet School

English National Ballet School, official School of English National Ballet is a specialist training centre for aspiring and highly talented young ballet dancers aged 16 to 19. We transform talented young dancers into world-class performers over a three year programme validated by Trinity College, London.

We are a talent-led organisation and each year 300 young dancers audition for one of thirty places in the first year. Once a young dancer joins, they have an incredibly bright future. Our dancers join English National Ballet and other prestigious ballet companies worldwide. Currently a third of the dancers at English National Ballet are graduates of the School.  

We are highly respected in the field for our training and pastoral care. We are regarded as an 'exemplary provider' by Trinity College London and have been awarded Outstanding by Ofsted. We continue to be the only Dance Specialist Dance and Drama Award school to consistently achieve this grade since inspections began.

Campus information

We occupy a large first floor area in a traditional Victorian red brick building in a quiet street in Chelsea. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, whilst still maintaining the air of a place of study and learning. The corridors are filled with the sound of music from the dance studios and there is a real buzz as students move around getting on with their daily activities.

As well as the sprung floor dance studios, there is a body conditioning and  weight training studio. There is also a dedicated room for physiotherapy. There is a well-stocked library and a study room, with computers providing internet access. Students have their own space to relax in the student lounge.

At present, we regret that the School premises are not easily accessible as they can only be reached by stairs.

English National Ballet School is situated in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in south-west London, very close to the famous and fashionable King's Road. The immediate area is residential with good shopping and restaurants near by and whilst a busy location, it does not have the stresses and congestion of London's West End.

The students have easy access to some of the most famous landmarks and institutions in London, like the Royal Albert Hall, Royal College of Music and Harrods.


It is important that students feel comfortable and secure in their living accommodation. We take great care to ensure you are directed toward suitable lodgings and most new students live at hostels recommended by the school. 1st year students are encouraged to live in a hostel before taking the responsibility of living in a flat on their own or with others.
