Over the last 90 years Arts Educational Schools London has seen some exceptional talent come through the School and go on to make a considerable contribution to the Arts Industry and beyond. Their successes have made us extremely proud and we hope to continue to help with inspiring and encouraging the next generation of Performing Arts professionals for many more years to come.

Arts Educational Schools London have their origin in schools founded in 1919 by Grace Cone and in 1922 by Olive Ripman. Both schools were pioneers in providing suitably talented children with an academic education in conjunction with specialised training in dance, drama, music and art – preparing young men and women for professional careers in, or connected with the theatre. In 1939 the two schools amalgamated to become the Cone Ripman School and was renamed Arts Educational Schools in 1947.
Whether you are still connected to the industry, retired, took a different path and career, we want to hear your stories.
Whether you attended the school or the college department, we want to hear from you.
We would love you to search your own personal archives for official school photography and uniforms.
