Welcome to the School for Wise Children


  • If you are just starting your career or looking to develop your skills

  • If you want to explore and grow as a performer, creative or member of the technical team

  • If you want to make collaborative ensemble theatre that tugs the heart strings and tickles the funny bone…


The School for Wise Children is the place for you!


Led by Emma Rice and her award-winning collaborators, the School for Wise Children offers training courses and opportunities for independent theatre-makers and emerging companies.


We are passionate about making high-level theatrical training accessible to everyone, so our courses are free with assistance support available.



The School is supported by our wonderful friends The Broughton Family Charitable Trust, Ros & Alan Haigh, Celina Dunlop and the Noël Coward Foundation.
