English National Ballet School is a talent-led organisation, that transforms talented young dancers into world-class performers over a three year programme validated by Trinity College, London.

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. ENBS dancers join English National Ballet and other prestigious ballet companies worldwide.

English National Ballet School is highly respected in the field for its training and pastoral care.  The school is regarded as an ‘exemplary provider’ by Trinity College London and has been awarded Outstanding by Ofsted. ENBS continues to be the only Dance Specialist Dance and Drama Award school to consistently achieve this grade since inspections began.

The quality of provision, in all aspects, is outstanding. Teachers provide highly skilled tuition and have excellent contacts with major dance companies. Students value and reflect well on the very high quality advice and guidance they receive from teachers, physiotherapists and staff
