Sylvia Young Theatre School is an independent school in Marble Arch, London, England. It is a specialist performing arts school named after its founder and principal, Sylvia Young OBE.


The Sylvia Young Theatre School was founded in 1972 with part-time classes in East London. It was established as a full-time school in 1981 on Drury Lane, but due to expansion it moved to Rossmore Road, Marylebone in 1983. The school moved premises once again in 2010 to a converted church in Nutford Place, Westminster.

Students either attend the full-time school (students aged 10 to 16 years), the part-time school on Thursday evenings or Saturdays (students aged 4 to 18 years) or holiday schools (students aged 7 to 18 years).

Students from the Sylvia Young Theatre School have appeared in television, film and theatre productions, including main roles in Merry Christmas, Mr. Bean, Matilda, Billy Elliott, The Lion King, The Bodyguard, Les Misérables, and Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. Alumni include Royal National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company actors, and performers in TV and music.
