We audition everyone who applies to The Susi Earnshaw Theatre School. Most pupils join in year 7 but we can take pupils at any time during the year, into any year group where there is availability. We will take pupils into years 5 and 6 if we feel they are ready to take advantage of what we have to offer them.
The Susi Earnshaw School is committed to ensuring that its admissions procedure does not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnic origin, disability or gender. Candidates are selected on vocational aptitude. The panel’s decision is final.

Fees are due on or before the first day of term. Please note that any reminders that have to be sent out because of late payments will incur a £25 administration charge, per reminder. A deposit of a £1,000 is payable on acceptance which is held by the school to be offset against the final term's fees.
There is a reduction of 10 per cent per term for second and subsequent siblings. Additional charges may be made for any individual private lessons or small group lessons. Pupils are responsible for their own examination fees and text books. Parents will be billed accordingly.
The school reserves the right to increase the fees whenever necessary.
To withdraw a pupil, one term's notice must be given in writing to the Headmaster failing which a full term's fees will be charged. To withdraw a pupil from Year 9, 10 or 11 two term's notice is required.
PAYMENT OF FEES
Prior to the beginning of every term, an invoice detailing the fees due will be sent. Fees are payable in advance in respect of each whole term.
In the case of new pupils, where the invoice is sent after the beginning of a term, the fees must be paid within seven days of the receipt of the invoice.
