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).
