Mountview is moving to a new home.
We are now embarking on an exciting project to change the shape of UK drama training. We are building a new school through which we will become the leading academy in excellence, social access and innovation in training for the creative industries.
In partnership with Southwark Council we have secured a high street site in the heart of Peckham in south London, next to the Stirling Prize-winning library. Since July 2015 we have been developing designs with Carl Turner Architects for our new home. We have also been talking to local cultural organisations and considering how we could enhance the current community offer to better benefit the local people of Peckham.
On 28 September 2016 Southwark’s Planning Committee voted unanimously to approve our planning application.
Ground stabilisation and foundation works were carried out this spring and building work began in April 2017. Mountview in Peckham will open to public and students alike in autumn 2018.
