Mountview trains students differently.

One of the UK’s leading drama schools, we develop actors and practitioners who will become the future of the creative industries. Through innovative practice, new approaches to working and close relationships with industry, we cultivate graduates who are independent, generous and actively connected to the issues of the day.   

The arts can enrich and change lives. We are passionate about dismantling barriers to the arts and engaging with communities in Peckham and beyond. Every year we share our space, expertise and resources, opening up access to the dramatic arts for all ages and abilities, while simultaneously learning from and collaborating with the vibrant cultural ecology on our doorstep.   

Today’s students join a constellation of graduates making their mark on the profession. Actors Grace Hodgett Young (Sunset Boulevard), Ben Joyce (Back to the Future), Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), Artistic Director Rachel Bagshaw (Unicorn Theatre), Musical Director Sean Green (Get Up, Stand Up!), Olivier Award-winning actor Giles Terera (Hamilton) and actor Eddie Marsan are just a few of our notable alumni.
